Models built for the 'Five Holes or Fewer' Secretary's Challenge

The Challenge:

This Challenge is an idea from Brian Leach. It is to build any model, but only using parts that have a maximum of five holes.

So, any standard Strip up to 2½" long, the new strips with ¼" spacing will allow only a 34mm (approx 13/8") Strip. Brass parts with holes drilled through from one side to another will be counted as one hole per drilling, so a standard Collar, part 59, will have two holes; the "4-hole" Collar will have three holes; a Short Coupling, five holes, but a standard Coupling will have too many at seven holes. Hopefully, you get the idea! Let's see what you all come up with.
