You bought long ago a Rolls Royce.
You chop it.
You bought also long ago a Magic Train coach. You chopped it then for whatever and now you chop the remaining roof.
You open your styrene scrapbox and you chop some pieces.
Mr. Wallet say 'no way to spend on paint this month'.
You give it all to Mr. Magoo and he explain it is better so because, instead of cleaning the airbrush every time you make a vehicle, this way they accumulate and you will
have next month an intensive vehicle airbrushing session.
So you keep chopping whatever crosses your path as long as it has wheels.

Afterwards you smile because you notice the remains of the Rolls will provide a neat French (yes) carriage.

I would have put oval windows on the truck cab sides.

STATE OF THE ONION

Well, that was the original plan but I reconsidered it because the wheels of the kit I'm using now are not the older solid ones of the chopped Airfix kit but of a more modern pneumatic version... :us:
I hope I will manage someway to make a couple of the oval side windows in the older pick-up with the chicken cages I mentioned before.

Drawing an ellipse more or less convincingly is a headahce. Drawing two identical ones is for my eyes science-fiction. If I make the side ones elliptical I should make so also the rear ones  and making two different pairs of decently alike ovals would mean an advanced stage of masochism. The solution would be an ellipses template ... L: ... 


Mr. Magoo

NO!!! :td:  No way this month!!! Don't even think about it!!!

Mr. Wallet.

L: ...  Hmm ... I have no idea where to steal two pairs of  elliptical holes!

The roof was cut to length and the front support braces trimed.

The seat has been reupholstered because Magoo was shocked seeing the previous version in the enlarged photos but also because Sleeping Beauty (my memory function) suddenly woke up and reminded me that long ago I had the idea of using a crosshead screwdriver for that

Well, it is a very sunny 20C+ day here. Beautiful for cycling. But I won't. Not that I wouldn't like it. It is so that I caused last time a little funny accident but the pain in my back is no joke.
What was it?
Well, after crossing a forest, an area where a secondary street joins a speedway and the bike path diverts. The asphalt has there about a hundred meters of a serrated surface stroke at each side.
I saw it and decided to try it on my bicyle.
It was delightful!!! Such a massive, total shaking in my whole body as never had even on the trillplate at the gym!!!
I enjoyed it a lot and even wondered if getting back just for doing it again. But I went further and came back home.
No problems at all ... so far.
Yesterday morning each of the places where the shaking had been a pleasure was hurting. A lot. I am used to pain but this was -still is- really A LOT.
So no chance to touch the bike for a couple of days: I can't even imagine myself going the three floors down the stairs...

:bang::bang::bang::bang:

Not that bad. Google " oval drawing template ", download the one you want, make a copy and have fun.
Jose.
