I see you have no problems at all for display space!

I really like the large hammer on the work bench... Just in case, I think?

Again, great work, and a beautiful display!

We stole the eagle from the Air Force, the anchor from the Navy, and the rope from the Army.
On the seventh day while God rested, we overran his perimeter, stole the globe, and we've been running the whole show ever since.

The display cabinet has a max internal useful exibition surface of 12 sqm. at the moment it's 8 sqm.
- it is air thight to minimize the dust problem .

About the hammer it could be the "last judge", but I normally use it for copper details shaping .

Many thanks and bye .

....Big enough to hold an XB-70 with room to spare. Simply mind-blowing.

Pretty impressive!! Was it custom built , salvaged from a store, or what??

Thanks for posting,
