All aboard the Skylark!

Bought this on ebay earlier in the week, described as 'not working - missing parts'.  Turned out the driveshaft in the electric motor that turned the clockwork was sheared in half. Also there were a couple of 'handles' missing from the outside of the case. I removed the original workings and replaced them with a simple, battery powered quartz movement out of a modern kitchen clock. Luckily the original hands fitted with a little persuasion. Just finished turning new handles on my mini-lathe; they're the ones at 5 & 7.
