  1. Hope it comes out of the ground as quickly as you found it !
  2. Saw a Video on youtube yesterday on the forgotten weapons channel , in which they showed and talked of the Welrod Mk IIA assassination pistol . A very interesting story about a very unique gun . It was mentioned that while a number of items were thought up and designed by the SOE that a number were connected to one town in Great Britain . that they shared the same prefix of Wel . previous I knew only of the Welbike , how many other items were created , could some one list them .
  3. What a great tradition , The Photo's you say you thought were not very good are really indeed very good . I knew of the tradition of individual Dutch families adopting a grave of a fallen military person , but did not know of this Winter candle lighting. So many fell during the War both Military and civilian , is there any similar ceremony for the Dutch civilians ? I wish other Americans knew how these WWII dead continue to be honored, I know I have told many over the years since I learned of the tending of the graves. Thank YOU .
  4. Another year of fantastic progress , first class workmanship and great skill at solving each hurtle . A Very Merry Christmas and Hope you and your family will have a Happier New Year .
  5. Nice show of the Fodens power , but the story that the crane was too wide doesn't make sense as its no wider than the trailer , so if the crane is too wide then the tractor trailer combo is too wide as well .While the Foden is the narrowest .
  6. That's a fantastic amount of progress in a short few days! I realize many of the parts were finished , some a long time ago but for they to slip into place when your plans came together must make you all very happy. You probable are also getting use to having every so slightly more space to move about the garage and all now that these pieces are being installed and not scattered about.
  7. What was the problem with the Jeep ? Great that you got it sorted out, hope is was minor.
  8. Lets hope this step in saving the ship wont result in more damage from corrosion now that it has been raised than what would happen if it was still submerged as it says it may be a number of years while it is inspected and plans and money sought before any serious work is done . What I m saying it it should be in a controlled environment and have treatments started that would start the process of removing the sediments and salts that have affected every inch of the ship if its only raised and left to the elements it could quickly rust beyond being saved.
  9. Quite a clever tool .Glad you kept experimenting and found a solution , They look great !
  10. I m sure the people at the foundry will be very sad if you should finish your work one day and not need anything cast ! Do they have a frequent caster discount ?
  11. Read this story in the Local Paper today , It was a amazing story of very brave resourceful group of men men who did a vital job who went unnamed during WWII and who's action had been total forgotten until recently. They will now receive that overdue attention with a plaque . Did any one else know any thing of this story before now ? Here is the link http://www.omaha.com/news/world/honor-for-hero-who-saved-london-from-wwii-flooding/article_eee08842-650e-5c87-a9db-51a579105204.html
  12. Update the roof has now been replaced it was finished a week and a half ago , had a bit of rain over the weekend and things seem OK , the siding was replaced along with the gutters and downspouts they finished that late last week , Still waiting on the widows , doors and interior work . It will be nice to be able to have sun light shining in again where I still have wood covering the broken windows .
