Picked up an IMAI Cloudbase kit on evil-bay, less than half the going price. OK, some of the smaller bits had been started, but nothing show-stopping.

I'm planning to accurise it (as much as reasonably possible) which means pretty much junking the main deck altogether because it's too narrow and too thick.

Hopefully, I'll post a build on here.

Colanders

Saw these on e-bay and couldn't resist them. I've started to build up a slightly odd assortment of kitchen bits and pieces as seen in the Anderson productions.
No prizes for spotting where these appeared.

Catching Up With Altares...

:2c: :read:

Recently got Planetfall, the new second book in the Into Infinity series. Have to look up a schematic somewhere of the Altares, to remind myself what's where! Enjoying the read so far... :yes:

Zero's Desk Antennae

I always thought these were made from the squeezy things photographers use to clean dust off lenses, but it turns out they are little oilers (oil cans).

I found the one on the left first and couldn't believe it when a few days later the one on the right was listed, complete with funnel!

I'm glad to say that my models of these in the Space City Control Room are spot on so no need to go back and alter anything.

For reference they are 2 inches diameter and 0.75 inches deep.

Its the innards from a Sperry Directional Gyro; these were used in the vast majority of allied aircraft in WW2 including the Spitfire. The image shows the Sperry gyro rear mounted in a Spitfire cockpit; usually the control yoke sits directly in front of it (there are at least four other Anderson used items in this image...).
They appear regularly on e-bay, though mostly from the US.
If you plan on getting one remember that the luminous paint on the dial is likely to contain radium (radioactive) and the dust released when opening MUST NOT BE INHALED - so disassemble outdoors and wear a suitable mask/respirator and I wouldn't keep the dial (you don't need it) in any room that's regularly occupied. Mine came already disassembled (innards only) so I didn't have these worries but I gave it a good rinse off anyway.
The gyro was spun using an air jet, hence the vanes on the central piece; here's a video of a chap playing with one...
