    Hello, all,
    my name is Willie, or Wullie, as my wife calls me, I,m 66 and a retired Carpenter, I live in Brechin in Scotland, I, live in a rural location, and from our window we can see the foothills of the Grampian Mountains,my main hobbies since retiring 10 years ago, "ill health"are making slabwood furniture, and latterly, working model ships cannons,but, just 3 months ago, whilst watching TV, I saw a programme about Mountain Howitzers,and decided, yes, i.d like to make one of them,which is what I,m working on at the moment, I will post some pics shortly, once I,ve worked out how to do it,
    my other hobbies are my radio controlled model battleships, of which I have 2, the Bismarck, and the Scharnhorst,...and through having friends in the US, your Civil War,

    Welcome From The Heart Of Dixie. I'm glad to see other folks that do the same thing. Below is a link to a youtube video of a howitzer I just got thru restoring and here are some photos of one I'm currently building.
