Since this is a family blog, I convinced Michael to take some pictures of the projects he's been working on so I could post them. He's been busy working on his T-Bucket Roadster, getting the body work done. Here is a picture of the passenger's side of the body after all the ripples have been covered. This is a picture of the driver's side with the door mounted and the costume extension that he added so that my knees won't be up around my ears when I try to drive this thing eventually. Michael was blessed by our friend, Billy, who is allowing him to use his large, heated shop to work on it during the winter. If you look just in front of the rear axles, you'll see the extension plates Michael added to lengthen the frame to fit the new body extension. He hasn't done anything to the motor yet.The kids love to go over to Billy's shop and "help" when Michael gets a chance to work on the T-Bucket. They think it is a wonderful go-cart. Still haven't replaced the tires or rims. Michael will do that last. At this point in the build, he is designing and fabricating the clutch and brake systems, which did not come with the original T-Bucket. For other posts about the T-Bucket, click here.
This wood and paper WWI bi-plane model was originally purchase by Josiah at a yard sale for $1. It had almost everything in it. Michael spent all his evenings putting it together when he was working out of town in last summer. I was so impressed that he actually wanted to do this. It was unbelievable complicated to put together with all it's wooden ribs. We hung it in Josiah's room, which looks really good with his curtains that have vintage airplanes printed on them.
Just had to brag about my Valentine for a bit. Happy Valentine's Day to you all!
Love and Blessings,
