The frame is made from alluminium rod, we are sitting having breakfast at the moment looking out on a lovely view;
This is the view from our B+B;

The project is to get the children helping with all aspects of the sculptures so the quality of the work for 12 year olds is very good. Pictures from Day Two;

Wrapping the balloons around the frame, this does have a technical name which Colin will need to refresh my memory as I have forgotten at the moment;

I can honestly say I'm a bit tired or words to that effect as Colin and I have just worked from 9 till 7.30 today with only a few short breaks but the truck is 99% finished. We now have to start on the other five sculptures in the morning and have them finished by Friday night. So pictures from Day Three, our self contained B+B apartment and the view from the drive. We redid the head light section from 260 single to double wrapped 350's, looks a lot better.

We were very pleased with the help we got from the children today, I think there must have easily been 25/30 helping us.

Building the front radiator section of the truck worked well as the children pre twisted the balloons to size and I weaved them into place. We were having to work things a lot different than normal as we had so many pairs of hands wanting to help at every stage, sometimes Colin and I could not keep up with them all.

A view from underneath and the truck finally goes up after 2.5 days, it got a big cheer from everyone at this stage.
