Thanks, Lars, I'm looking forward to seeing it.  This scan is all I have for now, I'll be taking delivery from Dennis at the same time as USS Olympia.   He says there is some touch-up to do, and I believe he's going to build a base.  Maybe get the Black Cat around Halloween, or at least before Christmas and the I-5  Tejon Pass to his place in Northern CA gets subject to snow closure or bad driving conditions.  All the best, AB
