Raspberry Progress and Monsters

Thu, 15 Oct 2009

 I've added a new set of model to the Flying Pig website. The Classic Monster Series is created by Hong Kong based paper artist Ng Wing Him. Click on the Mummy picture to check them out on the Flying Pig website. 

I've also managed to fit in a bit of work on the raspberry model. I've added a set bellows to the rasper using the same design as before. To be honest, the sound level isn't really high enough. The crinkling sound from the bellows seems to mask it and I don't think the air throughput is quite enough. I'll have a go with a slightly smaller outlet. That way the air should be moving faster, and hence hopefully it'll be a bit louder. I'll keep you up to date as I progress.

    Is the model with bellows

    Is the model with bellows available for download somewhere? I'm a master of bellows since the train whistle and cuckoo model 🙂

      There are no plans as such

      There are no plans as such online but it would simply be a matter of adding the sound parts from the crow model to the bellows with a blank card front and back. It would be worth making the bellows larger that for the pipes, the sounder needs a fair throughput of air.

        Thanks for your reply, Rob. I
        Thanks for your reply, Rob. I was thinking, since the sounder needs quite a lot of air, maybe a solution similar to the cuckoo model would be suitable? I mean, if you take away the birds, pipes and centre divider (and add the sounder instead), the air would be concentrated at one place – the sounder.

        What do you think? Maybe you’ve already thought of this, but this was my point of view 😉
