    I used to have a download of this car in paper in my computer, but when my hard drive lost it's interest in living all the files were lost. I can't find the site where this came from, anybody know where it's at?

    The model in question was designed by Ed Bertschy. For some reason I can't seem to find his site at the moment.

    I noticed on the Web archive of Ed Bertschy's site the following text:

    "Anything you find on my website you can use however you want. I would appreciate it if you didn't sell anything you find here. But please feel free to download the files and offer them for free on your own website. I would like to get these models distributed as far and wide as I can."

    Since Ed's site seems to have disappeared and I know from the Smartgroups file project he doesn't seem to be e-mail contactable is it worth retrieving Ed's models and loading them into the Cardmodels Parts Bin?

    I can do the donkey work if it's thought to be a worthwhile project by the denizens (of this forum)

    Regards,

    Charlie

    Hi Charlie

    I think Ed would appreciate anything you can save and reproduce here. I have already posted his Steam engine in the parts bin. He has some terrific models on his site, but I never got around to building anything but the steam engine.

    I have all of his models, a small treasure trove of little gems!

    The missile and dolly were one of my first models and was a joy to build!
    I would like to do them one more time actually, now that I have a practice run under my belt and I know what to expect.
    I haven't built the truck yet, but I am sure it's a winner also and goes great as a set!
    I would love to see them become a permanent part of cardmodels.net, myself!

    I have problems also with the downloaded files.
    Anyone willing to share? Better if posted on the forum.
