John R... same exclamation I get when looking in the mirror. Thanks bro. Fernando... the guns were fun to build... a bit crude best viewed from a safe distance. Steve... thanks, glad that it has turned out ok. So far it has gone to Shizuoka and back safe.
Hi Tim, could be.
At first I thought they were metal sheaths to protect the blades from being shot off by the Vickers but the Vickers had an actuator rod connected directly to the engine so that possibility was off.
