Nessie Sighted in the Lake District!

Tue, 6 Nov 2012

If you've been following along on Instagram and Twitter you'll have seen that I've completed the parts design for the Nessie project!


Everything works very smoothly including the all importang Scotch Yoke around which the whole conceit is based. Turn the handle and the humps rock back and forth powered by the rack and pinion. The head and tail bob up and down in synchrony powered by cam surfaces at the ends of the rack.


I've even got as far as designing my own tartan to decorate the box!

Colour next.
