      Mieaux vaut tard que jamais! (Better late than never!)

      Well, its been a very long time since I last finished a model! The Beatles were still hoped to reunite! and Nixon was just about to be toppled!
      (Also, this is my first scratch built A Model A Model, (finally!) model!)

      Both of the above statements are true, however, I have studied model making my whole life, and been around it and model makers, since I was just a little Donald. I was the manager of Paul Freiler's Historical Models for half my life, at the time I left it. I then did a too short stint making models for the movies. I worked in Northrops display model group for a few months, and I have been working in the concept car field for nineteen years!

      I am afraid that I might have been "Hijacking" some of your threads, I do go on and on! but never of course was that my intent, and if I have offended anyone? please accept my apologies!

      All that said, here I go!

    That is a super instrument for engraving letters/numbers like I could see on that miniature gun. Have fun with it!

    Hello Roger!

    We'll see! I had the chance a few months ago to buy a Deckel pantograph at a very good price, but it needed to be overhauled, who knew what was missing, and they weigh 1000 pounds!

    I have become increasingly concerned about the weight of all my tools, in case I have to move, and so I pursued the purchase of this smaller machine. Obviously Mr. Kucer has made it work for him!

    Have you ever thought to make models of guns?

    -Don
