I like it Larry ............. but I have to say am more interested in your Lulonga.
Have you started that yet? If not please pm me when you post so I don't miss it.

How did you make the gun?

Have you used the Ikea before? What did you think of it? How thick is it? etc

Hi Larry

Yes, the gun is good. What I like is the 'casting' has the right sort of surface look to it - saying it badly but I hope you know what I mean.
Re Ikea - I've just been the post office to collect my first ebay parcel of Ikea slats. A lot of wood and so little spent :-))

Keep posting up the Lulonga - I was looking at the boat quite a lot a while ago, so nice to see it being built.
