Those are not mine. There is an article on Dave & Shirley Rowe in this months BRM.

 

Did take pictures though.

Great video along with some really great modelling skills and all running to the sound of the magic roundabout. Thanks for sharing such a nice display.

As a lover of the great mans wonderfully whimsical designs - "Thank you" - It proves that the British "sense of the ridiculous" humour still exists!   Far Twittering and Oyster Perch for ever!  Simply Wonderful.

Bit of a gap as I've not been too well.

 

I've completed two crates to mount the PWM controller inside. I'm looking to tidy and finish it this week.

 

Will post some more pictures.

Been asked a few times off forum about the size of the Pulse Width Modulation module used in this project.

 

So before it's cased, here is a picture with a 50P and the Li-ion batteries with the added current control.

I had wondered how to disguise the control.

So I built two custom crates from coffee stirrers

I've now fitted the PWM board into the bottom crate, the second will sit on top.

 

To disguise the charging socket I've fitted the reclaimed socket inside a milk churn.

 

The picture shows the parts.

I think the rear centre can be considered mostly finished.

 

The picture shows the crates housing the PWM control and the socket inside the milk churn.

Getting quite close now, I have done the signs. I've pretty much decided not to fit a gas lamp in (It was going to be on the corner with the fencing).

 

Wondering whether to fit the owl and dome in?

 

The tree at the back of the station had an owl in the original Emett drawing.

 

Only place really is to make an Emett style platform / crows nest on top of bare tree (That is used as a handle).

 

Any thoughts appriciated.
