Get inspired!

Sickening, weakening
Don't let another somber pariah consume your soul
You need strengthening, toughening
It takes a bit of dark to rekindle the fire burning in you
Ignite the fire within you

Used to have one of these vacuums.  Something like 2.5 feet long.  Can gut inside to make lighter.
Though do not have one now to work with.

You need to visit an antique store to find one of those!
The iron makes me think of a brick, the prototype for the F-4 Phantom. The comment always was ďGive it enough power and even a brick will flyĒ.

Iím thinking of using a plastic ball from the craft store to make a Dynasphere. Itís a one wheel vehicle where the driver rides inside the wheel.

I think this one is one of my all-time favorites of yours Mr Tomcat!

That's some impressive ingenuity and awesome modeling talent on display there!
