    The ribbits are the ones that were already there on the flat car and the chopped caboose. In the center of the, erm, uh, hull, :D I had to add a section of plastic which is as baren as the iraqi desert when it comes to ribbits :( But, I'm glad you _didn't_ notice, because that means it's not so obvious, which is what I had hoped. I still might add some ribbits to the area if I can make them look good.

    Anyways, it's all good now, because I'm finished forthe week, the Voodoo Priest is bendin' the strings on that upside down guitar, and I get to play loud tonight :D Oh yes, and the star spangled banner just started, kinda chokes me up :(

    That gives me a good idea too, it would make a great army caboose with all that room on the end for gunning down baddies, no? :D

    Yes, you could mount a wopper of a Dahlgren on there But then again you could just turn that GandyDancer car loose 'em. :D

    A small crane, and a good supply of "the Box" would do also.

    No guns yet, but I did add in the ribbits using the techniques learned at The Gauge . This was done after the fact by using the fabric wheel on a very thin sheet of styrene and affixing over the naked area. I like the ribbits, but had to try twice, as the first time I pressed too hard, resulting in dashes instead of dots. Like I said, no guns, but I did get the ships wheel mounted on the helm. :D :D :D

    The rightful owner has reclaimed our shack on a raft from the nasty, dirty pirates. As a preventative measure, siderails have been installed. :D :D :D
