Every so often I pick up a bunch. Lets face it I have more things in stock then most shops do, yes I had a shop at one time. Too much work, too little pay.
Those kinds of things don't turn up on eBay deutschland, maybe you could assist me in rounding up a dozen or so around 50mm and set up some sort of swap. Do you fancy sauerkraut?

larry,
just use a springer hull like I did. Check my attachments on my blog page (click on the BOZINATOR on the left.

I used epoxy resin not polyester because it stinks. west system 105 resin and 205 hardener if you must.

Yes I do, my heritage is Polish. I have spent some time in Germany, Nuremberg the Toy show. And I worked for Robbe Model Sport for a number of years. Let me see what I can do.

That's a nice assortment john, and yes I've been married for 10 years but never thought to ask for tools. She indulges my hobbies though, she has surprised me with weekend trips to Oshkosh and several air museums, the latest one was the technik museum in speyer, and one year she bought me flying lessons! Aren't wives the greatest?

Like I said my big clamps are near the floor I go up to 36 in. Plus all the "C" clamps are down there 1-12 in. That's almost 60 years of collecting.
It took me 3 to find one that would put up with me and my hobbies. Number 3 is going on 27 years now. You are so right, it's great when you find the right one.
