Re Transport: Your observations are how I found things here also. To bring me those 25pr trails parts, I settled on a fellow who knows the seller. Seller is in very rural area, so nobody wanted to go get the parts without huge expense. Also, size of main piece is larger than standard pallet, so up goes the price again. Then, because it's fairly weighty, up goes the price further. The sellers contact is travelling out to see him in near future, so he will retrieve parts at that time, and isn't charging for that service because he's there anyway. The total cost is very reasonable. I do need to be patient in waiting for that visit out there though. It'll be good therapy for me!
I've checked over the recently acquired firing platform closely today. I don't think it will need as much work as I was mentally preparing for. Sure there's a number of stress cracks and some corrosion, but i have a near neighbour (read as my soon best friend) who could weld two cat turds together. I'm sure I can induct him.
Incidentally, if anyone is going to be in Brisbane at time of ANZAC Day parade, come say hello.
I'll be wearing this shirt!
Will be wearing my suit for Dawn Service, of course!
