    @Chicago Rail

    Thank you for the kind words Ed, very much appreciated!

    Yes, agreed. Nscale.netter's here are a great group of humans ... and wombats ... whose collective creativity goes beyond modeling, and this moose for one really enjoys being able to be a part of it...

    Now to see about that crane to get Phyllis down from the ice deck...
