    Thank you Jon, It was a pleasure to build and now I know the pitfalls and have a better understanding of stitch and glue my next one will be even better. And as Dick Proenneke says "its always a pleasure to see what you can make instead of buying it" and when you have built it you understand how to repair it if it breaks
