It would seem they did not... but I believe the T&NO did.

thanks richard. T&NO sounds like it'd be smack bang in the rock island sphere of operation so i'd like to put a hand up for one if it comes to that.

cheers, ben

Update!

Sorry for the hiatus, but work has gotten in the way of the completion of my gondola project. I was stuck on how to create the stirrup ladders on the side of the gondola, but have started on a master that should be able to be cast in pewter. Problem solved as soon as I can get the time to finish it! My guess is completion by the end of the year, but I will keep everyone posted as I have new news or pics...

Thank you for all of your positive feedback!

Best regards,
Michael Livingston

I'll wait for your gondola!
It is necessary for me, because I like 1950s and can't use ConducTTor's shapeways gondola...
