Model planes, model tanks, model figurines, knife making, pen making...

Bit of something to do to keep me busy...

I tried my hand at knife making but gave it up, could not master it. I bring Damascus blanks in from the states(Alabama Damascus) and then my friend finish then for me. I got some Damascus pen blanks from them as well. He makes very nice knives. I still have a few Damascus blanks that needs to be finished.

I will post a photo of a tanto style that he finished for me

Hi

Impressive Donovan.

I do photography, 3 star worker at our local club, camping (not enough) and also boating when we camp at the Grootdraaidam. I put the rods in the water for fishing but that is mostly to to keep me busy during the day.

One of the planes that I am busy with is a Cessna 310 with a 4.8 meter wing span. It runs with two 50cc petrol engines. I built a 7x7 meter room in my workshop for that lol.

When I get home we should have a GTG

I have a host of other things that I do and the problem is that I do not get enough time with them all but here goes.
Build giant scale model planes, 3D printing, build cars(busy with a Cobra, Lotus 7 GT40 and a El Camino) build cnc machines. I have a laser cutter and a 4 axis router. With all this I do a bit of photography
