Derek has wise words, above. 
 

I regularly suffer from the issues you describe - hence many of my longer term projects take a looooooooong time to finish. 
 

I would strongly recommend a break - work on something else for a while otherwise the Toom will become a chore and that’s when things go wrong. 
 

I find some time away from a build means you return with renewed vigour when you’re ready and then it’s all systems go... until you hit the next bump ;)

 

I’ve been following this from the sidelines for a while and have loved your work so far - it’s inspiring stuff!

Well I didnt expect that :wub:

 

Thank you ALL for your support, and rather than replying individually I just want to say thank you all!!!!  I just woke up (Monday morning here) your replies are a little overwhelming to me. I carefully read each reply with a smile. 

 

I was just feeling the boost I needed from what you all said so picked the kit up and taped as much together as I could and flew it around my room, studying the beast from different angles and remembering how much I love the Spey Phantom and why I started this in the beginning.  Thinking I might get back to it I opened my emails and....

 

This was there from my good friend Kerry!

Well...she's all go again!  

You guys rock and thanks for your support.  Kerry if you are reading this mate I shall reply shortly!

 

I might study the wing to fuse shapes for a bit and make sure I am getting that 'coke bottle' right then finish off those intakes.

 

Cheers everyone, I love this community!

Those spill vents would be a good candidate for CAD modelling and 3D printing.  If your friend Kerry has created a Spey nozzle, buy him a bottle of whisky, and maybe he can do your vents for the air intake as well?

 

Yes mate I think they would, in fact a whole new set of intakes and reheat cans would get you a LONG way toward doing the hard parts on a Brit Toom.

 

I dont like asking for help with peoples time/skills as I know how precious mine is.  Kerry is planning on all internals too.  Such a nice chap...

 

Cheers Anthony

3D printing has the potential to revolutionise modelling (if it hasn’t already).

 

Glad to hear that you have regained enthusiasm for your “Toom” Anthony.

 

Keep at it. :goodjob:

Thanks buddy, 3D printing really has enhanced our hobby and taken it to a new level indeed.

 

I am all go again...trouble is I have to go to work soon :doh:

those 3D printed exhausts have gotten my interest. They could make a huge difference on this project 

Yes they will make a big difference, Kerry is very talented and has made a number of masters for Roy Sutherland

Ugh...I think I have hit the wall with this conversion.  As you can see I have got half way through boxing in the second bleed air section and I cannot seem to find the energy to finish it :unsure:

Some of my other projects are starting to look rather inviting right now....

 

Nothing that a few bottles of goood Scotch won't cure!  :thumbsup:

Thank you very much, I am working on her tonight, just stopped for a cuppa and some LSP inspiration before I get back to work before bed.  Thanks for your enthusiasm...I love it!
