Thanks folks, glad you liked it.

This week we were at our local Joann's, and they already had their Spring picks on display. There are great floral blooms, and they were 30% off at the time.

Gorgeous fife! 

Here's my contribution to this week's photo fun- 
Not a very pretty piece, but an interesting one. To the best of my understanding, what we have here is a chassis from a motorized Kusan ALCo FA. Unfortunately it's not in the finest of shape, but considering they made far more dummies than powered units, and I only paid a buck for it (you can see I never pulled the price sticker!) I'll take what I can get. It patiently sits around in storage, waiting for me to come up with a way to motorize it. But without any other Kusan equipment in the collection, there's really no hurry. I figure one of these days it could come in handy to power a Kusan Kanonball.

Now, back to the corner with you! I'll return for you eventually...


PS: anyone have a pic of a complete chassis?
