I have not posted much in the way of any woodworking/woodturning as I have been occupied with this little build. I do not keep a record of how long it takes but all I do know is that there are a load of bits that required making some on the small size.
The finished model measures 19 1/2” long 7 1/2” wide and 7” tall.
Made from loads of different wood out of the scrap box the most expensive outlay was the two cans of finish and not counting time.

This is a beautiful military model and is a real eye catcher and it displays a lot of wonderful details and fine craftsmanship.

So nicely do, and really loved following the blog on it’s creation.
It’s so nice to watch as a creator makes his choices for wood and what parts will be included or not.
And seeing the jigs used can’t forget the jigs. LOL
