Last week I posted some epoxy tips and used a little project I was working on as an example.
It is an RV for our cat Lucy for her first big road trip. It has a living room, a small dining room in the corner (not shown), and a semi-detached en suite bathroom. There is a servant’s entrance at the rear (of course) and a drop door for security.The command module separates from the comfort station easily and re-locates on two dowel pins for positive docking. The command module can then descend to the lodging zone for the night.
As Lucy is a V.I.C., she will be travelling with a highly trained bodyguard pictured with her in photo #3. Notice how even when the shot is only being taken with a cheap camera, she instinctively positions herself to block a clear view of her employer.
Photo #4 shows the “shuttle mode ” transportation to and from the mothership. Pay no attention to the bearer, he’s just one of the servants.
Photo #5 is a construction shot showing the no framing, lightweight style of “epoxy joinery”, similar to stitch and glue boat construction.
One Last Photo: This is her highness doing a first trial run in the house.
I invite you to suggest captions. (I don’t think “Wow, is this ever nice !” is on the table here.)
