Where I'm going to put it is anybody's guess, but it looks like a cool thing to construct and I like 'All Done With Mirrors', it's got a nice summer vibe, so the telescope is next on my build list.

A nice build from my favourite Tara episode.

Thank you Sir Very Happy I do believe it's my favourite Tara episode too. Not sure what the significance of naming it a 'Retro-Meter' is, buy hey ho. pop back and take a look in a week or two when the entire piece is finished Wink

Pulled this from the loft this morning. One of several projects I started in April 2017, but sadly abandoned. Seems a shame after all the work that was invested in it, I suppose it's time to finally complete it.

How cool would that be Smile Sadly I don't even have the room to display the smallest items now. George Oblique RX40, the Cybernaut, the broadcast power unit, it's all under a dust sheet in the loft along with everything else. I was laughing away to myself this morning while continuing to build the FOG props, it'll all end up dumped in the skip when I finally leave the planet, I doubt anyone will even know what it all is, yet still I seem to continue making it Laughing

The main Retro Meter box is finished, I'm really please with how it's turned out, and despite the added expense I'm glad I went the extra mile and hunted down the original 1960's parts for the control panel. Just the telescope to paint and add to it now.

Despite the vile weather I did manage to get the telescope finished and undercoated this morning. Hopefully if the weather is dry next week I'll be able to give it a brass coloured top coat and then fit it to the control box.

Break in the wet weather this morning so I was able to air spray the telescope with a brass colour top coat Smile



I intend to fit 60mm and 30mm magnifying glasses in each end to give it the illusion of being a real telescope.

Well 10 months after I started it, it's finally completed. Although even after 10 months there is still the problem I had when I began - where am I going to put it ? It's even bigger now !
