looks solid, wouldn't be caught on two wheels,but three looks interesting. is that a self potrait of the missus on the beautiful leather work? the Scots can't be all bad. Great work. Al

Hya folks, I'm back again. Lots happened at chateaux Haggis preventing me from doing owt on my model. However there was a model show local to me today and my wife Suzi took me along. All I can say is thanks Suzi, got my mojo back
However we now have a pals son livin in our spare room so he is near to college. So I have moved my stuff into my new Man Cave
Pics to follow.

Back building my Yorkshireman again and well into the grove

Cheers folks. The last trike was one I bought in to sell on but I wont be doing that again as it would have been easier to build from scratch.
Back to the model
I went back to the model shao and took my Yorkshireman with me. Everyone who chatted to me thought /i was doing a splendid job. Thats well boosted my mojo.
When I was there I saw a model and the wheel house was well sorted. I remembered a challange set me somewhere in this thread. So ahead I went and made some stuff. I will let the pics tell a story.



My efforts to match it.







Feel free to critisize and let me know what ya think please

It's worth the extra effort. Even though no one will be able to them when it's finished, you'll know.

Whadya mean no one will be able to see em? :( Im puttin clear windows in just so folks can see  :)
Anyway I was not happy with the telegraph thingy so I made another one. Bet ya cant guess what I used for levers??? All I'm saying is the missus aint to happy




Decided after that to make a ship to shore radio. Took a couple of goes as I didn't like the first attempt



So what should I make for the wheelhouse next?? To say I am happy is a bit of an understatment  ;D

Quick question. Would the Yorkshireman have had a steering wheel or lever steering?

I think you nicked it from the comb or hairbrush ??? from the missis, at page one I saw that you won't need it anymore ;D And by the way your yorkshireman looks great.
