Models built for the 'No Right-Angled Parts' Secretary's Challenge

The Challenge:

This Challenge was concocted at the 2017 Hainault Hangout by Brian Leach and I. It is to build a model that doesn't contain any right-angled parts in it. That means you can't use any Angle Girders, Flanged Plates, Trunnions, Angle Brackets or pretty much any other type of bracket except Obtuse Angle Brackets - we'll let you use those, but bending any part into a sharp right angle will be deemed cheating! Let's see how inventive you can be. A full list of banned parts will be available from me.
