Never knew they had goats. Do they stare at them?

Is your glider going to be in Spanish, like the clip?

Of course not.
Only men stare at goats.
You know that.....

No.
The glider will be multi-lingual so anyone can talk to it.

Oh, so what do they do with the goats then?

Cheers, mate.

I should just clarify, before the deadline tomorrow at 'Bibbles O'clock', that the idea will be to build two one 'man' parawing gliders, one of which will be more reminiscent of the Ewok offering and one a little more technologically advanced.
Including 'pilots' for both.
Whether I manage to get them done in the time allowed is a little iffy, but I will give it a go.

Looking forward to see those gliders, Paul, especially the Ewok-one  Smiley

 Cool Paul  Cool

Ewok gliders are something from Star Wars that I actually know so looking towards to seeing how you do it.

You're going to include the goats, right? It won't be a proper Ewok glider unless there's a goat chewing through the launch rope!

Thanks, chaps.

Not sure if I will get the time to make both and, as I am beginning with the more 'advanced' one the Ewok variety may not get done, but we shall see. I hope to do the pair. If I do get the time I doubt it will have any goats attached to it, though..... Wink

I have now managed to find some time to start on the first one so, hopefully, there will be some progress to report tomorrow.

Well, I have made a start.....

This is probably going to be the smallest entry in the BSC this year, especially if I do not get time to do the Ewok version.

Speaking of the 'original plan', it was something like this:

Keeping to the original spirit of the 'Build Something' principle, I wanted to keep to using basic scratchbuilding techniques, no fancy equipment, whilst also making something that can also be cast up.
Therefore I am strictly using materials that will survive vulcanisation, so no plastic etc...
(At this point I should mention that scoring brass plate continually with a Stanley knife until you can snap it cleanly is a bit of a pain!)

The plan is to build this during this week and then send it off to be cast up and hope I get castings back to paint up before the deadline.

So, I really need to get at least this one finished, and hopefully the Ewok-influenced version too, by Thursday evening.
The more advanced version is nearly done and only needs detailing. I also need to sculpt the pilot whilst at the same time crack on with the less advanced version (and cuddly pilot) using 'castable' materials.

Here is where I am at at the moment....




As soon as I have finished the underside I need to figure out exactly how the pilot will be attached to the thing, but I do have an idea on that.....
