Ah, that makes perfect sense.  I did wonder if it was deliberate given your precision in other aspects.

I just thought of a Victorian version of Asterix with a winged bowler instead of a winged helmet  Grin

It is, 10mm EVA, with copper car brake pipe, plastic 'rivets', and a self-made dial.

After a friend saw the wings, he commissioned a Valentine's day present for his fiance.  The names in the maker's plate are those of the happy couple.  I have it on good authority that she loved it.

Phew!

Very nice.  How big is it?

About two and a half feet across, by two feet high. I showed someone a picture of it, and explained that I'd done it as a Valentine's present.  The conversation went a bit like this:

"So what is it? A brooch? A pendant?"
"It's two and a half feet across."
"So a f*****g big pendant?!"
"It's to go on the wall."
"Ah, that makes sense now."

Thanks for the info.
