    Now something I necessarily need ...... ...... a "Galactica" bookend. Although I now do not want to cut the spaceship.
    I thought of something else from the Galactica universe.
    First I found me a bookend to the flea market for 50 cents to the really did it to me now not sorry.

    Jetzt etwas was ich unbedingt benötige...... [​IMG]......eine "Galactica" Buchstütze. Wobei ich jetzt nicht das Raumschiff zerschneiden möchte.
    Ich dachte an etwas anderes aus dem Galactica Universum.
    Zuerst habe ich mir für 50 cent eine Buchstütze auf dem Trödelmarkt besorgt, um die tat es mir jetzt wirklich nicht leid.

    Your fabrication ability is only limited by your limitless imagination! ;)

    Ihre Fertigung Fähigkeit wird nur durch Ihre grenzenlose Fantasie begrenzt! ;)
