    I'm stuck guys Sad

    The pipes got me thinking and thinking.

    So I PM'd and emailed David Mitchell one of our Scottish brothers on PlanetFigure requesting help.

    I also asked our popular Samwel to email Danilo (la huma hbieb personali) on my behalf re my querries.

    I also searched the net and stumbled upon a 79th Highlandres re enactment group but still no reply for my plea email Sad

    My doubts are re colour of the blowstick, the colour of the chanter with the ivory "horn" and wether the ring decorations on the red drones were actually gold/gilded?

    Since there would be several Kenneth Mackay'SSSS at WNT in AMT, I really would not like to look the idiot with an "overlooked/hastey" item. And being such a famed Piper who fought in such a well accounted Battle, I'm sure that his bagpipes are well documented somehow, somwhere.

    I'm sure that both David and Danilo would throw me the life line I HUMBLY pleaded for Sad

    I admit that I forgot all about him Ivan Evil or Very Mad

    However if I remain stuck I'll knock on his door for sure Evil or Very Mad

    But am sure that both David and Danilo will come to my rescue.

    Infact David responded first this morning and I already learnt a new term "junctions" re the "rings" that I referred to before.

    Still I would like to hear it from the horse's mouth (Danilo)as if anything I would be safe and paint it as he did IMHO What a Face

    Ray, why don't you post on planet figure? Maybe there's a scottish modeller that can help you?
    BTW, have I ever told you that I used to play the bagpipes? And I was quite good too Cool One day I will buy one to entertain you at the club Smile
