Melbourne Society of Model and Experimental Engineers. Xmas meeting.
The December meeting includes the competition for best model, best workshop tooling, and best engine. The 3 happy winners were all from Geelong.
Following is a video of Stuart’s toolpost milling attachment in action. It has been posted before, but is worth watching again. It is quite remarkable.
(Photo of the flame gulper to be added.)
But, the best part of the meeting was this demo of a model aeroplane which was made by Don. The plane weighs 2.5 grams!!! The wing material is mylar which is 1 micron thick!!! The flight was cut short by hitting a ceiling projector, but apparently the world record for a flight by a similar plane lasted for over an hour! This YouTube video has had 360,000+ views in 5 days!
