    Fire Kits

    Yeah I have a little pouch with a set of pocket bellows, a ferro rod, a lighter with some bits of rubber inner tube round it (because sometimes I just want it lit!) and some small tinder bundles or wax/Vaseline based fire starters. All wrapped up in a zip lock baggie

    Fox skeleton articulation (attempt!)

    Little bit more work on the feet Assembled the phalanges and distal phalanges l, drilled and pinned and now waiting for the glue to dry. I have some feet bones missing. One distal phalange on a rear foot, and 2 distal phalanges and one dew claw on a front foot. Not sure how to deal with that...

    This is what it is like at Postgrad level....

    I have done a little bit of conservation work with EH - my role has been little more than a gopher and fetcher/carrier tbh but i have been to 2 sites where I haven’t been allowed to take photos of the site

    Fox skeleton articulation (attempt!)

    Thank you. Bit Annoyed about the ankle but been thinking about it and I might suspend it in a frame, hanging from string then it won’t be apparent!

    Fox skeleton articulation (attempt!)

    Today’s efforts. Filled in some gaps where I have some bones missing, repaired the broken neck of femur and Built up the other foot….. and made a mistake. It’s to late to rectify though :( I have made the left foot slightly inwardly rotated rather than parallel with the floor, hopefully when I...

    Minimalist / barefoot outdoor boots

    what do you think those would be like for someone with only about 5 to 10 degrees of ankle movement, but almost normal forefoot movement?

    Minimalist / barefoot outdoor boots

    yes i have awful problems as i have 2 surgically fused ankles (both feet) done over 10 years ago now - i have resigned myself to never being comfortable in footwear ever again and i now just destroy 2 to 3 pairs of 'outdoor' trainers a year. I find if i have 2 stiff a boot it locks my foot...

    Fox skeleton articulation (attempt!)

    Well that wasn’t as hard as I thought, wasn’t easy but wasn’t difficult - just a fair bit of trial and error but i have the foot bones organised into where they belong, and one foot almost assembled. I assembled the rear left foot and glued it together temporarily with a hot melt glue gun, once...

    Recommend me a vest for Molle pouches.

    i picked up a black arktis b310 for about £35 and abused it for a good long while, before the waterproof drop liner failed - so i cut it out and now its a basic canvas type ripstop jacket, i wear it when doing really scruffy things and dont want to ruin my goretex etc. its also a great windblocker

    Clamshell style tactical packs - worth the hassle?

    I remembered what it is called, its a maxpedition Xantha. The reason i use it as a camera bag is that it doesnt 'look' like a camera bag for extra security. I use it with a F-Stop camera ICU inner pouch that fill the bottom half, leaving the top half (or vica versa) free for spare coat/food...

    Clamshell style tactical packs - worth the hassle?

    I have a maxpedition thing (can’t remember the name) that I use for camera gear precisely because I can open it wide and access the entire compartment at once. for bushcraft/hiking/camping I use a bag with no zip that I stuff from the top as it’s less likely to fail in a critical way!
