$ 19 400 last bid.

Anybody want to give me a hand building SFC reps?
I have all that's needed apart from the plastic for a couple.

Paul
I thought the same! Questionable bids perhaps an influence?

Well, yes and no.
Cadmium would seem to age quite nicely.

My SFC has received cadmium.
It did seem very latin pimp on the photos I got and can't find but on the later photos appears quite correct.

Paul

I am corrected ....... it is a grey colour. For aviation parts there is a final chemical added afterwards that turns the cadmium a gold colour. If any spots were missed then those spots won't turn gold so they know the process was incomplete.

Thak you Paul.

I should know more next weekend since the beast should be finished and delivered pending testing if it stops pissing down in Northern Italy.

Very.
But it's bubbly water for me, haven't touched a drop of alcohol in over 3 years.
Or tea, with milk, l'anglaise.
or coke!

Thanks a lot.

I very much enjoyed some Welsh tea recently.

Alcohol got to the point it was killing me quickly rather than slowly.

Perrier is very nice as well.

Salute!
