Torpedoes and wings

Wheel/wing profiles
Profiles and found objects - many of the forms start out simply as cut-out shapes....others are fabricated from an existing object or 'found object'.

Mk 8 torpedo minus warhead!
These will be used to form the three Ichthyosaur bodies

Profile moulding for the giant 'frame'

Planning permission granted beginning of September, so I have been working on the initial forms and moulds prior to the casting process.
