    Thank You! I've not gotten any rep before now. I was in 1970. Diego marine, Went to Memphis for Avionics School. Then to Cherry Point, then on to New River, Cadet A to HMH-464, the H&M s-26, went on a Med cruise July 28 '72' came back in April 73. While in H&MS-26 flew aircrew on 53's, and had my door gunner skins. Stayed there til Discharge of Active duty, to Active Reservist for 6 years. OV-10 Squadron 6 at El Toro. til disbanded in 86. Then 46 Squadron til 80. Separated in 1980 as a Staff Sargent.
    Would have stayed active for 20 yrs but wife didn't want. My father was in from Dec. 8th til 47, Both of my brother in-laws stayed in for 20 yrs. One got out as a Gunny, The other one was a First Sargent. He was in Nam 3 times. as a radioman humped a prick 23 or 28. Love the out fit from civil war. I got to get a picture of my chainmail. That,s all thanks again.

    I am going to attempt to scratch build a balloon winch truck. I have a couple of AA trucks coming from the US dist. for skytrex and might use one of them or something else. Could you take a close up pic of your winch truck mainly the winch itself. It would be a big help. Do you find that they add to the flavor of a game? Or do they just get in the way?
    Thanks Tony
