I added a new page for THE ENGINE. (Full caps totally justified.) Have a look at how I had to spend an entire afternoon making extra parts to make sure the pieces of a kit that cost £600 fit together properly. (I had a good old whinge to Sarah about this, and she asked me who I thought I was kidding. “You’re enjoying complaining about it, isn’t this part of the fun?” She makes a valid and incontrovertible point.)
Progress has been slow on the 787 for too long, but my confidence and enthusiasm are restored, and it is now back on the bench. I completed the gearbox oil cooler yesterday, and here is a quick photo of it as an excuse to post and wish everyone who follows or reads this blog a load of fun whatever you celebrate at this time and a very happy new year.
