Looks like fun. Do you reckon it would be possible to build it in RHD form by flipping some of the parts?

Ugears has a fantastic selection of creative models, I have watched some videos. Peter, if you want to tinker undisturbed, you can keep away from intruders with the model of the video below in the link. Then you can obviously see that it is an American company.
It just shows how intimately connected your cousins are to guns.

Possibly, but some may have to be re-made to fit the "other" side.

Another day...and the Morgan resemblance is getting stronger.
With wheels fitted a photo from the rear: the elastic band power section is clear. A couple of test runs suggests all is as it should be, time to get on with the wings.




From the side, with wings added, seats and windscreen. It has hints of the Aero Plus 8: discs all round, spoked wheels with low profile directional tyres: yes, the tyre walls have arrows and the instructions make it clear how they should be fitted!! Also vents on the wing and the seats, plus centre mounted hand brake! But the back is pure 4 Seater. feel that overall it is a bit short, or too high.



Next is the bonnet and the doors! That will be next week as the forthcoming week will be busy: no time to model.

I see a bottle of Jacobs Creek Cabernet is handy in case things don't go to plan! smile

...or in the event that an important construction phase has been successfully completed and must first be celebrated extensively.

Peter, since I have found much joy in the different models of Ugear on youtube, there are really many different ones, I am very glad to see your build successes.

Not that I wanted to compare my modest talent with your outstanding skills, but I can see from your photos that it is humanly possible.

I liked this one

and this one is also really nice, and the instrument is working!

Good luck for the next steps and enjoy your time!

As it is wood would bees-wax be a better lubricant?
