    Now I install the new, smaller gauge, wiring needed to make room for some devices that were just too mashed up inside these little cylinders.

            Yes, I need the occasional reminder to get off my butt and finish something. The little 1/72 Type-23 is one of those long suffering projects. I'm still enthusiastic about the project, but other business had injected itself of late. I hope to rejoin the Type-23 battle soon.

              Just checking in to see if there is anymore progress? Been pretty excited about possibly getting this done for the summer, but not sure how your calendar is going

              thanks again in advance!

                David, i know you are super busy. May I suggest something? Instead of you taking time away from other works and other models probably more fun than this finger cramper small build. Perhaps i can take what you have and figure it out. I dont mind a challenge. If you are open to that then we can have Bob setup an invoice for all the parts and perhaps you can just give me a few pointers but then i can work with it?

                thanks again in advance. Hope your fourth was fun!

                  A most gracious offer and solution to this long delayed product delivery. I humbly accept your offer, sir.

                  But, let's do it this way:

                  No payment. You provide me your shipping address and I gather up all work to date, carefully box it up and send it to you. And be assured that as you wrestle this beast I'll always be available at this end to help with material and advice when needed. I hope you will chronicle your work at this thread.

                  Standing by, Matthew.

                      Very good, I'll box things up tomorrow. And thank you for your years of patience, unfailing support, and encouragement during this failed attempt.

                        David, i dont see this as a failed attempt. Instead you are giving me an opportunity to grow me out of my comfort zone. Im sure ill learn a lot from this

                        thanks again!

                          Hey David, did you get a chance to ship that box? I just want to make sure nothing was lost in the mail

                          thanks again,

                            For some reason my e-mail is not working. Your box is underway and should be there early next week, Monday they say.

                            Here's the tracking number: 9505 5131 0714 9200 3299 83
