Great to hear from you Pam, It has been a few years (Eight, I think)
I spent the past 7 years writing two books on the USS Monitor
and hope to get back in the shop shortly. The Rocket has been on my mind for years
and is a real challenge in miniature engineering as seen in Bob's work here.
Hi Richard. Thanks for your kind comments. I still consider myself a beginner (as witnessed by my scrap bin), especially when I see the work of many accomplished members of this forum. But I do appreciate the hints and tips that they give. My next problem is the wheels. I haven't a clue as to the best approach - see attached drawing. I don't mind making a few deviations, but I'd like to stick as near as possible. I think the spokes will have to be round.
