Rowing Mechanism, Progress Report

Tue, 4 Feb 2014

I’ve modified the rowing mechanism a little, some of the lengths have been changed and I’ve moved all the mechanism back within the box. A simple boat outline finish off this prototype nicely.

Once I’d added this paper character it became clear that the rowlocks would need to be closed to stop the oars constantly jumping out. I’ll do a stop motion in the morning as the motion is really nice. If I can persuade #1son to hold the phone I might try and put something up on Vine later on this evening.

Here’s the plan. Love Boat, delivering a box of Love just in time for Valentine’s Day.

Don’t tell #Truelove, it’ll be a nice surprise for her.

    Looks nice but as Michael
    Looks nice but as Michael suggested the turning handle shaft needs to be extended out of oars so fingers remain clear of them when rowing loads of and lots of love. Natural colors of papers look beautiful even with a prototype model.
