Hey, we'd all like to see the pics Glad you posted to the forum, Velocity, this is all interesting stuff.
Nic, you're a builder, what's your reaction to those mechanicals? What do you think the detail is?


As a builder, its freaks me out a little when I see these “glue” together complete kits from Dedacciai and Columbus.

But I will live

But do you think that is a glue-in bolt, or a screw-bolt? I guess they occur at both sides of the joint. I've never seen that: is it like old pin joints, in way? With glue around?
