I apologize for being 2 days late with my Sunday update, but caught up on Walking Dead Sunday and had a Birthday Party on Monday so this is the first chance I have really had to be back in front of the computer. I will not say it won't happen again because I am sure it will. But the good news is I have a few things to update you on.
First of course is terrain. The biker shop is getting a garage door shortly, the glue is drying right now but it shouldn't be too long. The door is the vertical bi-fold I promised you, and actually ended up a little nicer than I first thought it would. The door itself is going to be smooth so everything works decently, but then will be covered with Orkiness.
I have also assembled a structure to house the big boom kannon. This one is not quite square at 5 by 5 3/4 inches and the roof of this one is non removable. It however is going to get a large garage door as well making it easy to use the interior of. Had I been thinking I could have tried using magnets to hold the ceiling on, but I was in a hurry to get something accomplished at the time. This is due to the weight and off balance of the gun itself, every time I moved it the ceiling fell off.
The crane has a post to attach to and will swing and slide but will not actually lift unfortunately. It is set up in the far corner, and I am hoping that I can actually make several more kannons and use a single crane to provide them all with ammo, maybe even returning to this project later and making it into a complete artillery complex.
In other news, I now have the lumber I need to assemble my aquarium stand. It is going to be huge, massive, and maybe Orky since I think it is being doomed to the garage, but that also means I get to look at my fish more, so it's not all bad. I wonder if I could build a clay Idol of Gork in one of them. I think making several Ork scuba divers with harpoons is now in order. Great now I have to get a box of Fantasy Orcs.
The aquariums I will be adding to this stand will be a 55 gallon that measures roughly 48 by 12 by 21 with all the plumbing pushing it out and up 3 inches. Second will be the new 75 measuring 48 by 18 by 21 again with 3 inches to the top and back for additions. Finally on one of the bottom shelves will be a little 10 gallon which I don't want to run measure at the moment.
That will leave room for a shelf or two on the bottom for food, cleaning supplies and any extra equipment I can add. Maybe even room to store my fish books. Due to a camera malfunction there are no new pictures today, I hope to have it fixed... pronounced charged for the Thursday report. Thats it for today folks.
