I do intend to attend at least one meeting, before long. Transportation issues, however, are preventing this. Can you get L-burg buses to run out my way?
I do have a Trumpeter KV (with the quick fried towers) in the last stages of completion; but who knows when I'll ever get her done. As far as grunts from Kip...well, I just don't know how to break that barrier. Maybe if you offered him some candy, or a toy, he'd be more friendly.
Better git! Best wishes on your project. Dave
