Hi Brian and Thanks for the post. I have one on the workbench and getting the feel for designing on the fly, so far I love it.

This is a rough cut of my back access panel

Thanks much for the warm welcome!

I'm pretty new to the whole CBG thing. My first "build" was literally a kit I only had to wire it up. Currently, I'm learning to play this thing.

In addition, I'm collecting items now for my first scratch build. I've been online searching for ideas because I love building stuff.

My wife is wondering why I'm so giddy look on the old inter-web, Then she looks at the websites I'm checking out, thinking I might be look at scantly clad women. Then she says, cigar boxes? Really? Shakes her head and walks away.

Anyway, I really digging this. I see how this can become an addiction from so many angles.  Looking forward to building and playing!

Thank you so much,  I can't wait to get home and go through the list.  I have had the box for several years and just refound it this past weekend.  The receipts are such a treasure in our family.  But every time I see the box, we live in Georgia, it adds a chapter to his story.
