Guys
I cheated coming up with it. I wanted to sign off as 200,001_Jim but that was too obvious. Then I ran 200,001 through a binary bit grinder...too long. So I selected HEX next...just obscure enough, I thought. Bammm! There it was!

Bob, a Lexus mirror? That's funny. The waist size really had me chuckling too!

I AM ALIVE! had some health issues which kept me off the computer for awhile but I am now reading the forum and reading past messages. I have been in contact with Cl-Jim who is forwarding the award to me. I am honored to have the award and being a mature modeler, almost 75, I appreciate the history of the hobby. Thanks again for the award.

Glad to see you back! I was worried about what happened to you. That is really nice of Jim to offer the prize up!

FargoPhil,
The prize is boxed and ready to head your way. I'll have it in the mail with the next lot of clips Saturday AM, and a tracking number PMd to you.

Honestly, it took me almost 10 minutes to close the canister after putting all the goodies back in. It was almost as hard to reassemble as to solve! I left the propeller out of the canister because I didn't want it getting bent. Look for it in the packing in the box.

I will be tracking it too, just because I no longer trust the USPS. I'll give you two weeks from delivery before I post the sequential pictures showing "the solution." That way you can enjoy the puzzle too, and fall back to here if you don't get in (and you really need to get in for the goodies).

Thank you so much for letting me borrow it for the last few weeks!

Yeah, it was quite the puzzle Jason made. Glad to see you got into it! I'm looking forward to seeing what you do with the .020!

I have been looking since i broke into the puzzle for something to use the engine on. So far all I have found is a Mini ringmaster kit by PDK LLC. If you have any other ideas and links I would like to hear about them. While the engine is definitely special it needs to spend its life doing what it was designed for not sitting in a box.

I was looking to do the Scarinzi Queen Bee.

See it on OZ...and a recent link here where I was going to mod the QB to look more like a Pitts Special.
