Hoses & belts.

Once again...beautiful work. Still would like more information on how you go about making hoses, belts that fit pulleys, plug wires, etc.
I use a thin piece of wire bent to the shape of the pipes etc and then I
cut the thin strips of wood and soak them in water overnight next i make a mould of the shape of the pipe and clamp the thin strips of wood in the mould till they dry and they keep their shape when dry
easy,
Mel.

"Easy" might not be the word I use to describe your technique. Quite wonderful work. My fingers quiver as I look at the detail of your models.
