Quarantine chronicles from a SketchUp user

Hi there folks! In order to avoid the COVID-19 virus and following the recommendations made by the governement of my country, I’ve isolated myself at home. So I’ve decieded to model with SketchUp every evening during the next two or three weeks. I’ts just to practise and see time passing by.
The thing is I’m going to use this topic to upload the results of these modeling sessions. If you like it, you can see me modeling in Twitch (6PM CET, Spanish language).

Lovely work. Make sure @TheOnlyAaron knows about it so he can update his Tower Bridge model!

I think he mentioned something similar as the topic of one of the upcoming live modeling streams…

Awesome! Great model!
@cotty I was thinking of a decorative column at some point… Feeling inspired thanks to @alsomar!

Hey alsomar, great work you’re coming up with. I like the cabin very much as it’s stand-alone showpiece. And the bike is looking great too, any more progress since this post?

Definitely shows some clear thinking in your approach I think. Have you been self-tutoring?

I’m really impressed by the wheels, hwo did you approach doing the tire-tread? also the foot pedals? care to share?

Hi @SkillipEvolver! Thank you so much for your kind words. You can see the recordings of the modeling sessions here:

Despite those videos are in Spanish, but maybe they can help you a little.

Out of curiosity, how does that trike steer? “Skid steer” using single wheel brakes on the back?

I found this pic in the website of the manufacturer (mobocruiser.com)

8th model, a M-5 stapler (March 24th)
