Hello,

  I recently acquired a large group of Erector type 1 parts and thought they would make a decent Eiffel Tower model. After building it, a local restaurant owner saw the model and asked if he could buy it. Of course I have to keep the parts but I agreed to let him display it at the restaurant for their French cuisine promotion. The owner gave me a very nice gift card in exchange for the loan of the tower and I took my wife there for a wonderful dinner...I guess that is one way to get our significant others to support our hobbies ! :)  20171025_132226.jpg 20171025_132306.jpg 20171025_140813.jpg
