    I hate rivets, it's as tedious as knitting. Mindless fiddly work.

    Subject To Change:

    I changed my mind about what to work on last night. I had it in mind to detail the rivets but an idea occurred to me as to how to fasten the visor to the helmet so I went with that.

    I used a slip joint slide to fasten the horizontal stabilizer to the vertical stabilizer on my Thunderhawk so I know it will work and as long as it isn't treated too rough.

    We see below the result of an hour or so fiddling and waiting for the various glued parts to dry; a slide rail on the helmet and a slot to receive the rail on the visor. The tolerance is snug enough to hold the visor in place but sufficiently loose to allow ease of removal.

    I really should learn to take videos for these demos but slipped half on.

    and slid home.

    The beauty of this arrangement is it allows me to complete the visor lighting at a later date after I finish the interior cockpit assembly.

    And a few images of the visor in place and at the proper angle now:

    The Neck Passage:

    Before I leave for Las Vegas a little something that came to me this past evening. Since I am making a full cockpit interior I'll need a sufficient mount so why not use the mount to simulate a passage thru the neck.

    And to reinforce the floor and give me something to attach the cockpit why not a few Lightening holes.

    I'll explain how this was done when I

    See you all next week; Ciao.

    'adder, the head looks amazing! Some of your best work yet, also interesting to see your learning curve over the last 3 lucius builds... will you be adding lights and electrical effects (like fan blades on exhaust, turning radar dishes etc) to this beast?

    Thanks for the reply; I am back from a tedious 2600 mile odyssey traveling the breadth of the United States in three days in a 16 foot truck trailering a car which was no picnic. It took me a day to recuperate and a day to unload the truck and a couple of days to get my groove back. Yesterday I began again to make pieces for the interior and I hope to have a post update ready tomorrow. Meanwhile thanks for all the posts and the support. I'll try not to let you all down. Worthy of note; I spent three days in Las Vegas and didn't spend so much as a nickel gambling. Somewhat of a record to my mind but I did see the Arizona Meteor Crater which was a life long ambition.

    Slowing Down:

    Am I slowing down in my dotage?

    A week ago I was somewhere in Texas, Windmills to the right of me, windmills to the left of me from horizon to horizon.

    The tallest wind turbines in the U.S. have been installed in Texas — the Vestas V90 turbines are 345 feet high, and are rated at 3 megawatts each. They are part of the 63 megawatt Snyder Wind Project, a wind farm that’s just been installed in western Texas.

    Today I finally put the floor in my Emperor Titan head. a weeks worth of work and damned little to actually show

    http://i.imgur.com/XQ8Z1Xs.jpg


    I vacillated from not enough room to too much room......

    http://i.imgur.com/RZR7ltm.jpg


    but now that the actual floor is installed it all is coming together correctly

    Sorry for what seems redundant images but the previous ones were without the floor and not able to be handled. Now at least they are held together with gum bands and aside from being somewhat askew are just about right for installing the interior furniture.

    With plenty of room to spare.

    Tonight's repast; Martini, Texas Chili and the Doctor Strange BlueRay Video....

    Skoal.
