Not sure whether this is comedy or tragedy.

          Only later did the 54-year-old realise it featured the mis-spelling "Oylmpic".

Says it all really !

Have I hit my head or something... possibly, Walt Disney has taken to designing ships from the afterlife...

That is seriously the ugliest artists impression of a ship that I have ever seen.  The designer should be sent to a rehab clinic to dry out and then be made to look at it in daylight while still sober.  Even those car transporters look better.  Relatively.

If you go here  http://books.google.co.uk/books?id=1IqBydvMRZcC&lr=&rview=1&redir_esc=y  and browse to the early '40's, and look in the small ads, they (US govt) were calling for anybody with a home workshop to step up and make parts for weapons and help the war effort.  I imagine that nowadays, anybody in the US with abilities in the home manufacture area, like model makers, is probably on an agency list.  Not the CIA, because they operate beyond the boundaries of the USA, but the FBI are probably interested.........

In the club house a few months back I was reading an old model engineering mag 1949 I think, with instructions on building a Sten gun for home guard use %% %%

Probably the result of a 'agent provocateur' operation. The victim would be easily led, and would have been told that he was 'helping the struggle against the Great Satan' right up to the point where he was arrested. I don't suppose he thought much for himself anyway - just did what he was told....
