Hornet is moving along nicely

After a shaky start the hornet project is moving along. Have completed 95% of the brass components just got to make the brackets do the head and abdomen as well as the mandibles and antenna. Really looking forward to applying the finishing touches.

Started making all the brass sprung loaded pistons and other thingamajigs. Starting to get a feel for the scale of this piece (massive). Next I have to assemble all the wing mounts which means soldering steel… yay! Well here goes.
