Well can finally reveal. This is a full scale wedge tailed eagle made from 1.2 mild steel sheet for the head & feathers. The skeleton is made up of round mild steel, and the talons are forged from reo bar. Wing span is approx 1.8 metres.

It will be mounted inside  a building at a veterans retreat near Charleville, however building has been delayed as the mill for the structural timber decided to fall to bits.

Was meant to stay under wraps until the building was ready but it was taking up to much room here at home.

Just delivered it out there & had a week camping at the retreat.

Been lots of hold ups with the building so it was decided to display the eagle until the building happens. Although it may just stay up there.

This is an open group so should be visible to those with Facebook.

Raym, absolutely brilliant, you are man of many talents. I looked at the date on your post and thought how did I miss that, went back and searched and couldn’t find it, is this the reveal?

Bloody well done.

Thanks mate, the plan is to live in it while we renovate the house, then it will be a motorcycle/farm workshop on one side and brewery/bar/mens shed on the other.

I was about to ask if there was going to be a brewery in it  :cheers:

I am building a man cave within my man cave. I need a dust proof area for all my radio gear and other stuff, I have sacrificed a 3m x 2.4m space and have all the walls up and done. Put in a desk today and will start fitting it out further tomorrow and hopefully start tramsferring the gear in next week.

foil boarded the west wall of the new garage in prep for lining the whole thing with 15mm ply - only have 2 more walls to go with foilboard before I get to start doing it all over again with the ply.

Both look great!

What are the two small dark squares in the garage floor, & the 3 (probably 4) what look like raised, round, metal discs ???

Squares are from the wife painting out bed head...... without a tarp. Guess I'll have to repaint garage floor now.

Discs are actually tie down points, yes 4.
Fil used them to strap his old Goldwing level when he was working on it, servicing etc

Hey Pottsy!

Thought about you while we were at the Boonah Markets last weekend! ;D

You ever thought about a table at your local ???

Nah Fizzie, I’m just doddering along selling by word of mouth, I should get serious and try one or two and see if it’s worthwhile, need to get motivated one of these days.

That could then take the serious risk of almost turning into a business, I guess! :o

Yep, don’t want that, it’s just a bit of fun money for when we get the chance to getaway.

Chat to your accountant. There is a hobby form we use for community sport that enable tax free income to a certain level. You may be able to use this.

Paying tax is not the issue, I don’t want to be tied to the shed, it’s just a bit of fun, between toys, painting, grandkids, wife’s medical appts and the odd trip got enough going on. I’m sure I don’t even do enough to pay any tax anyway. Cheers

They can be a bit of fun.... ;D ;D
Clear instructions are gold.

I've put a couple in over the years. One gave me a bit of grief...random alarms.
Turns out the numbskull installer didn't quite nip up one of the terminals in a sensor... :-[

Swapped out the old reverse lights with some LEDS. A big difference, can now see behind me
Left is the old light, right new LED light.

You don't use magic to disappear, ya use a 4x4 & Swag.
