    Thanks Brian for your kind comments, Very Happy

    Yes I have to admit that the main range finder station, shall eventually end up as a kit within a kit.
    The whole assembly including the armoured measuring and data transfer room, shall be consuming more then 800 parts.

    But the effort was worth it. There are a couple of minor faults, but I am quite happy with the outcome of the overall result.

    The whole thing should be ready within the next 10 days, and can bring it along to the club.

    Cheers.
