the three ladders getting a first coat Ocker revell aqua colour acryl paint, ran out, need to go to the local model shop for another pot, then I can give the three ladders another coat.

the heads of the bolts that hold the ladder channel piece, that guides the upper ladder to slide up and down, need to be recessed back into the timber so they fit flush, so they don't foul the upper ladder as it slides through.

finally it's completed, just the base and glass case to make for it. for now it's embellishing the top of my drinks cabinet as a talking point for all my visitors that fancy a fancy drink with a little brolly. 


the base will be paving or concrete, 1890, was concrete invented? Google is my friend.



the next time you see it, it will be in it's glass case.
