||n.b. you spell lightning the way I always want to. you have lightening rods but you are missing Rod's knife switches and that is a MUST HAVE in my book
||Thanks po. How could I have forgotten the switches? <fixed>.
||All profits go to support the MSRC.
||you are quick, I worry about that in a man.
||If an older-edition kit were made, maybe a home-study course could be developed, like those Heathkit sets. Hmm... maybe I'll change the name...
