Cheers Rob!

Not modeled on anyone, but could be named after some people, like

Spike Milligan, who had to endure a Jeep Bath (senior Officer got first use of the water.....!)

or perhaps

Alexander Thynn, eccentri Marquess of Bath:

Yup, Autogyro (UK) Gyrocopter (USA). Great fun, always wanted a go, see them over Camber Sands occasionally. Celebrated Autogyro builder and pilot (inc 007 fillum) Wing Commander Ken Wallis died last year, top British boffin. I considered an Autogyro for this Diorama but already have 3 flying things listed.

Was driving past Rochester aerodrome, Kent last week and an Autogyro took off right over me, great sight!

Now getting to grips with the mechanism.....<<Stanley Unwin; "Deep joy, counter-rotatey mechanold with Ball-Beary smoothly go!" :

Great micro car analogy: small, simple, light, cheap, fun but dangerous if you take liberties.

Good Planetarium analogy, yup a bit like that or an Orery. The inner and outer vertical shafts will have pulleys and belts to 2 vertical counter-shafts. The handle will be on a shaft with two worm gears, these will drive two spur gears of different sizes, one on each counter-shaft. That will ultimately give two "layers" of model going clockwise at one speed and two more layers going anti-clockwise at another speed. The models show transport by water, rail, road and air.

Once that is done it will be time to get the "layer" base-boards made and fitted (the basic structure of the hill part of "Sleepy Hill". THEN it will be time to start making the cams and bell-cranks to work the non-transport models and just hope not too many mechanisms snag on too many other mechanisms! Exhausting work, brain hurts!

Three R's in Orrery Marcus. Sorry to be pedantic , a lot of them have passed through my hands over the years.

GODDAM SPELL-CHECK! I wrote it with 3, Spell-check queried it, so I altered it! I HATE spell-check, especially as it is ALWAYS set up with American mis-spelled versions of words!

My iPhone is frankly ridiculous , as I am away a lot recent contributions have mainly been via this channel . When I re-read some of my sentences the whole thing is quite different to what I typed in , it doesn't just respell words it actually will re-write a section with TOTALLY different whole words and phrases . I emailed my office today to mention Much Wenlock Pharmacy and it was hilarious what it made of that !

Well come on then, tell us!

If I recall correctly, the first Modern Olympic Games were held at Much Wenlock and included Poetry and Flower Arranging. I don't even know where it is.

There's the rub Marcus once I corrected it my phone seems to remember so I can't remember ! Much Wenlock is in Shropshire , Wenlock Edge , Long Mynd, Ludlow,Shropshire all very Enid Blyton Famous Five - a really beautiful part of the country which has recently become my favourite county

Had a look on Google, near Telford, not an area I have been to, even though I have traveled a fair bit.

Talking of spelling errors, I received this email from Jean today.....

"Not only have I been laid low by some anti-inflammatory drug prescribed to me but  my email jean@rumcars.org has ceased to function.  I am hoping you may get this email to ask you and Christ to keep the RumCar flag flying until I can get things sorted out."

Hilarious! Either Jeans thinks I'm better connected than I am or she is revering Chris a little more than she should!
Poor Jean, she must be feeling rough to have made such a mistake.

Miracle cure needed!
Get well soon Jean!

It makes me laugh when the government goes on and on about education and teaching kids to spell. My answer: make it illegal for computer companies to sell computers in UK with American spell check software; by Law the software should be supplied translated to English. I have analyzed my speling and recognyze that it is getting werse because Spel cheque keeps querying English spollang!
