Vanessa CG Machine

Many of you may have seen this before, but I haven’t and thought it was a rather clever idea.  I was chatting with Tom Johnson the other day and he asked me if I had heard of this, then brought his to the field the following week.  I think I need to make one of these for myself.  Looks much better than the CG machine I use now or a couple of pencils in a 2 x 4. 

Note : The 'Vanessa CG Machine' was, I understand, designed by the late Jim Archer(died 2002), a modeler in the truest sense of the word "amateur", one who loves the hobby.
