That is superb engineering in that scale, and a really nice diversity of a non engine project.
It's nice to see craftsmanship of all model engineering projects, be it engines or nonengines.
Craftsmanship superb, in your video.
Thanks gents, We are just keeping busy and still having fun. It is interesting how one skill or discipline can promote and blend with another. Ralph
Hi Ralph, nice planes....
You are so right about how one skill can promote another. Since I dont yet have a metal shop set up I am planning an archtop bass ukulele build. One indispensable tool used for shaping the top and bottom plates of arched top instruments are arched sole "finger" planes.
I made a couple with wood bodies but traditionally they are brass.
Thanks again. I built these planes to suppport my other interests and have found them so very handy and useful in my other hobbies - building model airplanes, miniature furniture, small wooden boxes & treaure chests, etc. Just had to have proper tools for those endeavors. These planes really do the job. Ralph
