Well RPF Friends, yesterday was a total bust man I didn't feel to well so I study on parts and lanterns, plus gave me eye type balls a rest much meditation yesterday. I also want to say Thanks for the Likes and Comments, yep did those in caps cause they mean a lot keeps pushing me forwards, and onwards. So felt much better today and I busted a move no more worm on a stick holes all filled in and all lanterns made and some cables ran. So much painting also got to make some worm harness this will happen after the worm is painted. Lot of fun in the shop today Thanks and Enjoy

Okay Guys, I used bread tie wire for the lanterns I took 2 and burned the plastic off then put them in my tool and spun them tight and this gives the lanterns a look of movement. More cable work, make the stuff hanging from the bottom, and the way those things are strung up is going to be a trick. Oh I still got to make one really cool part, you guys will see it all happen here. I really still have a gob of stuff still to do worm chapter 2. I have been trying to figure out where the cable goes that's wrap around the cannon, also the main cannon, that small generator that sits right behind the cab. Wow what a list its in me bloody head. and it echo's echo's we shall see what's next. Thanks

Thanks RPF Friends for all the comments and likes, Also A Better And Healthy New Year To You All. Okay Guys, some more cable work as well as those blankets that hang on the front walk ways. I also got started on the crazy looking generator, just making a dent in the stuff left to do. I finished my year out in the shop making, and I will start my new year out making. So here is some making fun from today. Thanks and Enjoy

Yep a cool and good way to bring in the new year making. These blankets might need some extra added they want to curl which give the illusion of movement as well. So more fun happening in the morning making in the shop we shall see what's next. Thanks

Okay RPF Friends, had a busy day in the shop. So I first went to the blankets, the one near the back I wasn't happy how the top looked, I also doubled them both to make them stiffer so they would not curl so bad. This did the trick for the blankets this also fixed how the one top looked. Then back to this crazy looking generator, which is now complete and attached awaiting paint. Then on to the bottom hanging things, Wow these was a trick, mostly stringing them up, now this is completed awaiting paint these are going to be fun painting some head standing coming. Then I started to study the ladder on the back of this thing, went on a crazy parts hunt with fail so this is still in concept stage, but I have a plan. I still have to make worm harness then all the crane lines with worm off, and worm on. I will be having eye surgery on the 13th but I go this Monday for eye checking. So I am on a quest to make all this happen before surgery still got to try worm chapter 2. As said when I started this quest this was for a good friend he is a toy dealer he has anything from vintage to now. We will trade up he has some things I am wanting and are very rare. Yep lots of fun happening till I got stumped on the ladder as said I have a plan here is todays fun. Thanks and Enjoy

Yep Guys, there is this real flex wire it comes in many sizes if you can't find that you can use diff gage's of solder you wrap it with any gage wire you want makes cool air lines as well as not glueing the wire take it off then you have a cool head set cord or any kind of hook up line just a trick That is what RPF is about Why I love it. That generator is going to look cool once its all painted up. Got to get this ladder made. We shall see where it goes. Thanks

Thanks RPF Friends, for all the kindness love it. Well had me some grandboy time, but later in the day I got kind of busy concept of a ladder happening, first try was not right the pic I am holding it to the back platform opening this got changed after looking at the grab. I am hoping to make this ladder fold also I just might have to change all the ladders that is a bunch of work so may not happen the ones done do look cool. so here is some fun efforts from a bit ago. Thanks and Enjoy

Well Guys didn't get very much done, but I do have a start on the ladder also think this trick to make it fold under like it should will work fingers crossed. Still so much to do, I am glad I switched gears to making from painting back to paint soon. So back at it again see what's next. Thanks

Thanks Guys, for the comments as well as the likes, Yep the old wire trick the hose I made I super glued it all then q tip remove access glue off. I will do my best, just wait till you see my next build. It will be crazy as well. Okay Friends of RPF, I went to grab up the ladder and it came apart in me hands, I need a strong ladder that I can make fold. So I started a 2nd one and wasn't happy with the results. So on to ladder 3 which is going to be cool a waisted day on just trying to think this out. So here is todays ladder quest. Thanks and Enjoy

Yep a old radio antenna make for a cool tubing resource. a selfie stick has some cool bigger tubing as well. I now think I have a ladder that will fold one thing is it folds in like 4 segments I don't have the room so I am doing only one fold so that bottom rung you see a mark on the wood that is where the cut will be. I thought about cutting the bottom segment into 2 but that wouldn't look right so this will have to work I might have a plan to make it more rite. Well eye stuff Monday afternoon I will have to see where things go what ever time I get home I will be in the shop. Thanks

Yep RPF Friends, in the shop I was before we left the house, I was able to have the ladder all done. Not on the walker till I got back, then I got busy once again I am a maker that for some reason am making like I can't get enough making. Well after getting the ladder all done and on I also made a little holder that holds the ladder under. Then I was thinking which way what is next then I got busy once again, this time I will have to see where this goes but I made a armature for worm chapter 2. With eye Dr. long trip can't keep me from making. Fun from today. Thanks and Enjoy

Okay RPF Friends, Thanks a bunch for the likes as well for the comments. Guys I had a kind of one of those hit and miss days, trying to guess how much I can get done between now and Saturday this is the day I decided to deliver this to my friend, with eye surgery looming I decided to forgo the chapter 2 worm. I am kind of displaced by this decision but this is a day drive to deliver so Saturday is the only break I have for the car. So I got busy today and what is that blue glowing drink they all seem to love on star wars sploska I know that spelling isn't close but its on Mando a bunch. I set a bottle of this drink on the banister on the back, also strung me up some cranes which the cranes are removable. Now for that special thingy I was talking about some bit ago here this is as well lots of thinking things out today. Lot of fun for sure Thanks and Enjoy

Alrighty RPF Friends, Thanks so much for the likes and comments, so I keep thinking Saturday I really have to see how everything comes along. There is still a lot of stuff to get there, so today I worked on base for the worm and this is all complete man a bunch of wood removing. I like how this looks I wish I could have got some clear rod but what I used is cool as well. So now the worm is ready for paint and this is where I will start in the morning. Lots of figuring out this mount but man it is so cool looking I want to keep it, I wish. Here is a bit of fun happening for sure. Thanks and Enjoy

Okay Guys, now it is painting time first thing I keep thinking of going on and measure the sling that holds the Joopa worm before or after paint I will decide that whenst I standeth there looking at it. So Guys I am trying to decide another thing should I paint the base or leave it natural wood with a clear coat on what shouldist I do both would look good ether way but which would look best? For the time I will mask the base while I paint the worm I will take photos of the process airbrush time going to be a bunch of fun in the shop. I still have a bunch of painting to do on the walker. Then some fine tuning some where along the way I will do a complete photo shoot that will come soon. I really Thank All you Guys of RPF for the followers and for the lookers and Most of all The Likes and Comments this is what RPF is all about. we shall see what's next. Thanks
