Activity


Of late I've only been passing by once or twice a week.  Something happened last week that might make me a more frequent visitor.

I broke my right leg in a motorcycle accident. Despite the incapacitation, the expense, the burden on my family, and the burden on my employers, I am thankful for the outcome. I could have been killed, or in a coma, or otherwise unable to move at all.

Until I'm able to use my computer (I can't even get to the room with the computer right now, I'm typing this from a tablet) I can't submit any drawings, but all this time on my hands might cause me to draw some.

You are most welcome.

Thank you for showing us those wonderful drawings. They remind me of the old Brockbank cartoons.

When I found your microcar drawings, I was going to ask you to draw a H-M-Vehicles Free-Way, until I realized that you had already drawn one! :D

The two biggest problems I have with microcars are my height and my gut; I don't think I can fit into most of them. Otherwise, I'd love to have one, especially a Messerschmitt or a Free-Way.

Interestingly, the Freeway and the Messerschmitt have opposite issues- the steering. On the Messerschmitt the handlebars are direct so it is about a quarter turn from lock to lock, but the Freeway is hard to keep in the lane because the steering is so vague, and the suspension in general could have used more development work. At least the Messerschmitt seat raises to aid entry.

I figured out that the cars I have an issue with are the ones too low in seat height, even a "big" car like the Trihawk- the doggone high sill and low seat made it difficult to get out of when the top was up. Getting in was just a matter of gravity.

I did not know that, but somehow it doesn't surprise me. The Germans are noted for making vehicles with precise, accurate steering and handling and the Americans... aren't. Even moreso considering that Fritz Fend was an experienced aviation engineer and Dave Edmonson was fresh out of university.

I found an article on the Free-Way about three months old that says that Edmonson is 71 years old and still living in Burnsville, Minnesota, where the Free-Way was built.
