Yeah, it had THAT look, I'm happy it was all intentional. Looks very architectural, allmost like a building. At the short end finns are probably no problem? When the fins are fanned it appear first look a little heavy without any embelsishments, but were that building, would you just leave it as a bold and stubborn like that....functionally it would work. Or would you use some bead or groove to "lighten" it. Or would you just make a X- or diamond pattern? Tough call after that bold start. And very fortunate to have such a dilema!

Cheers Rob,
 :beer:

Here's the latest pic with the top fins and a bit of clean up done.

Now I've got to get to work on the design of the rest.

Steve.
Steve,
I put it back together using all the right parts,
just not necessarily in the right order.:scratch:

Yes well pleased Dave,
 :D
I just hope the rest goes as well. This is taking me soooooo much longer than I thought, mainly due to the fact every time I make something - the list of tools etc I NEED grows and the funds available disappear.
Just spent 15 on wet&dry :bugeye:

Cheers,

Steve.

Pekka,

Had me reaching for my dictionary then  :bow:

Thanks --- I think? :scratch:

Seriously though can I use your previous terms, so if anyone asks I can say it was designed along the 'reverse transitional art deco functionalism lines.
Sounds GREAT  :)

Steve, tell us, how did you get the nice curve to the edge? Did you mill that?

Yes & No Chris,

I set it up at 45deg and milled 2mm off the corner (about right for the designed 5mm rad).
Got the small 12mm wide fine file on it and just took off the two corners left.
Then a small Swiss file that was still wide enough to bridge the gaps and blended them together.
I must admit I was dreading it in-case I made a right mess but it went ok. I think less is more with filing radii just take off the corners gently and before you know it there's a curve, Haven't a clue if it's the right radius and I'm never going to measure it in case I'm tempted to go back at it with a file.
finished up with 600 then 1000 grit dry so far, as with the rest.

Cheers. :coffee:

Steve.

Anytime.. you can even own it or blame me for the consequences when somebody is first putting the timeline of different styles together and then logically trying to piece together the obivious and not feeling any viser! If you feel it describes it, then you'll be defining it. When you see "folks" having this kind of exchange over it, you know you are into something:
http://www.cheftalk.com/forum/thread/49716/what-does-deconstructed-mean

Truth is that I have an interest of different styles and their underlying ethos, but I still don't understand it any better than a lamb over a coffee, but what I'm lacking on skill or knowledge I'll ace with humor. Very often it's not even funny, very often just plain weird.

Like - the whole idea of functionalism was pretty cool, but did they actually managed to produce anything functional? In practical and technological sense. The icons we know were definately a distinct style and a very recognizable form language, but hardly never functional on classical sense. Art deco is harder to describe, but it was a more gradual and less disciplined transition from earlier. Don't you need that functionalism needs a little regression?
