Manufacture of the anchor
I just learned how to simulate a chain with a string

It wraps itself on the assembly done at the beginning all alone, thanks to an elastic mechanism

The way the model is build it was not possible to do any planking
The concept is for an open structure.
And as I said a fragile curiosity.
I give time to and retirement association here and that model was a hit
2 grand fathers went to get similar model to have grand son daughter build project
There are at least 4 companies that made that kind of model that I know of
