A wing and a prayer

What a contraption. Love the subdued color palette.
John Prior: Thank you Sherri
It must have had a function, but it does look kinda weird. The tone is almost like the old two toned technicolour smile
John Prior: Thank you Michael
Brilliant. smile I have just bought a book "Heath Robinson Contraptions" - this deserves a place in it. Maybe there's a new HR on the scene!
John Prior: Thanks Sheila, some Roland Emett influence as well.
who can invent this machine?
John Prior: Roland Emett perhaps. Thank you for comment.

It looks for all the world like a mad contraption - but I've seen these things to a fine day's work. Excellent!
John Prior: Thanks Chris, I'm not sure it all makes sense, touches of Emett and the witching hour.
I love the treatment here John. Great contraption which does put me in mind of Heath Robinson!
John Prior: Thank you Bill.

John Prior: Thanks Zed, yes great fun.
This sure looks ancient John..Well spotted.
John Prior: Thanks Ron, I think someone has added things to this for a joke.

A fine collection of parts but you do wonder if they have ever worked together.
Another fine bit of old type kit John.
