Walker, completed


The last coat of ink and varnish and - 'tis done!




Miss Calida Van Wert and Dr. Emil Koots inspect the walker at close range.

Now I have my worktable clear for the first time in months, I rather fancy the idea of a Darkest Africa game. Perhaps it'll be a strike against the Barsetshire way-station on Tylers Knoll, an attack on a slaver encampment, or even the progress of the Barsetshires to the great lake, said to be somewhere to the north. Decisions, decisions...

That is an extraordinary piece of scratch building, it has been great to see it develop into the finished article.

Thanks, gentlemen! It only took four and a half years from inception to finish, but at least it's done. =)

Lovely work there AJ!

Tis done indeed Sir and what a truly magnificent marvel of Victorian ingenuity and engineering it is by jove. I shall delight in reading of its exploits in the field.
Indebted to you for giving us a detailed account of its construction.

Thanks indeed! I'm getting the itch to make another one, perhaps in copper and black livery. Hmm...
