Well i have finished my LEOPOLD Rail-gun. On Sunday it will be delivered to the Technology museum in Warsaw for inclusion in the exhibition to be held there from the 17th December till mid february.
It is not a competition but it is the first time I have ever entered something like this. I bought the Italeri VW car to go on the road I built beside the track ,just to give viewers an Idea of how big that Rail-gun was. The November issue of FSM was also finally in my local store at last. So no more WOE is me....It must come by sea,to keep the price reasonable I suppose.

That's great to hear! So you're one of those people responsible for making me feel "inferior" at museums with your superb kits... Wink [;)] The best of luck, and for heaven's sake: POST SOME PICS! Big Smile [:D]

Congrats!! That is awesome. I agree with the others more skill than luck. Be proud!

Since we can't be there to look at it in the exhibit and celebrate -- by all (or any) means get some pictures, post them and we'll celebrate here!!

Are you going to be there on the 17th when the exhibit opens?

Sounds great Jim.
