I called it the MK1 bacon slicer, until we get the abattoirs fully up and running I throw them into the rear one for mince and lift them into the upper one for bacon slices.

Obviously the tractor has been converted to electric drive, and the generator at the base of the rotor mast charges the battery.

The autogiro was deemed a failure when it was realised the tractor couldn't get up to sufficient speed to maintain rotor velocity.

Future designs of the Wessex would remove the two front wheels and fit a single tail wheel.
