I didnt think of looking for the thread Bunkerbarge, maybe Martin should make it fixed at the top of this topic for easy reference in the future.

I believe there was some sort of idea along those lines but it didn't seem to happen.

Bunkerbarge you did a list of terms on the scale model web site could we not get Martin to copy it and put it on the menu on the home page ?

I actually copied it all to here Dicky and Martin was going to put a link to it somewhere.  I reminded him with a PM a couple of days ago.
