Hi Hindenburg,

Great work!
I expect that John of the Stirling Project will see it.
Kind regards.

Great stuff, Martin ................. keep up the good work.

PS - I was going to ask, 'what is that bag type of thing hanging on the right hand side of the picture'? ( image with the Flight Engineer ) ............ but then I realised it was a window that has been 'blacked out' with a cover.

You are either very old or very authentic ............... the latter I suspect. Extremely well done.
