Here is my progress so far. When I am working I tend to jump from one thing to another rather than progressing in a straight line. I was going to order the pictures in groups, The Man, Cams, The Bird, ect, but I decided that this would give a false impression of my working methods.
All my pieces evolve and change as they are built, and I try to make allowances for this in the way I work. Accidental, unplaned movments are always a plesant surprise and these occure when a looser way of working is employed. Although useful, blueprints can be very restricting.
Although it seems counter intuitive when building a machine. a loose bearing can give a much nicer movment than a perfect fit (in the right place, of course)
From now on, the man will be called Mike. The bird will continue to be called ‘bird’.
