My wife helped with the web job. She did all that computer stuff.

I did the dirty fingernail stuff.

Thanks for visiting.

Way cool, Kap!

I envy you your fun projects. Makes me wonder if I'll ever get there myself.

Thanks for the complements guys.

Doug,

I'm the fat guy in the blue coat, by the fat guy in the white coat. [img]/ubb/images/graemlins/grin.gif"%20alt="[/img]

Harold,

That was built during that down turn I told you about.
Out of work, business gone, trying to make a living.
That's how I made it so fast. It was a sample for sales purposes.

I did sell a couple guns, and mortars, but had to get a real job.

The established cannon makers, South Bend, and Cannons ltd, bashed
us new comers something awful. [img]/ubb/images/graemlins/crazy.gif"%20alt="[/img]

What's the name of that muzzle loading cannon magazine, anyone remember?

George,
Thankyou.
The Artilleryman is no longer avalible? [img]/ubb/images/graemlins/frown.gif"%20alt="[/img]
That's what amazon says.

Doug,
That is Fort Fredrich, Maryland.
They have small Rev War, and French and Indian war, reinactments.
They used to have informal cannon matches.
Shot against the Parks pipe cored gun.
No contest.

I never had an artillery group.
That was all volenteers for that day.
I had all borrowed clothes on.

As far as I know it is still available from the publishers of the Civil War News.
