The Bricks of a Building

The Cub project is currently in an ever increasing number of individual parts. Each to be cleaned, inspected reused or replaced. I have several boxes of zip-lock bags with these components in this mid-restoration filing system. It’s kinda neat knowing each item goes through your fingers.

These aren’t my project but the photos remind me of the excitement of opening Airfix model kits and unfolding the instructions readying the plastic kit for subsequent assembly.

The whiff of polystyrene cement has now been replaced by the hydrocarbon oils and machine cleaners and lubricants. I have a mind to photograph the Cub parts laid out on the floor…
…or a lawn.

…here’s another one!
