Andrew, I have only just caught up with this project of yours. Mate, I'm absolutely blown away. Can't find the words to describe the beauty of this creation. I have spent some time looking over your pics and identifying all the parts - the tinsnips, the cultivator points, D shackles, gears, cogs, towballs, the drill tips down the mane ... all things I use in my scrap sculptures, but your skill in placing them so perfectly makes me feel sadly lacking. You are indeed the king of scrapology!!
I bow to your Greatness! And doubly so cos you're Australian! Onya mate.

This has been an inspiration to watch and read throughout the whole process. Thank you for documenting the project while sharing some intimate ideals as the patrons too are benefactors.

 

Carry on

Thank you Ausfire and David for the kind words. I have just now completed 2 months into a third horse . This one Im having a lot of trouble with,  as the horse will be executing a tight left turn so its feet will not be vertical but rather pointing outwards from the turn direction..... also its spine will be curved into the turn  .So I stupidly thought I would build a vertically aligned horse then tilt the body into the turn . the trouble with this theory is that the two web trusses that support the horse from the frame (attached to the main pole) would also be tilted inward . It only occurred to me much later that the web trusses only work if they are vertical. so my: "  build a standard horse then tilt it " would not work . the next problem is that all my measurements that I use for the horse shape are taken from points on the steel web trusses(from the blueprint drawing )...... so by tilting the horse but not the web truss . all my old  3d reference points are now wrong .................Im loving the challenge but its taking 3 times as long. should be my best yet if I pull it off.  I will post some pics when I solve this one. cheers and my appologies for not responding to your post sooner. andrew
