  1. 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.

    Made a start on the new piece of work, laser cut components ready for fettling.
