    460039 460040

    This is how I did it, this is pretty rigid. Wouldnít take much to build it stronger still.

    I’d use something like this for the tops on the outsides, and one with three slots in the center.

    Aluminum Extrusions, Double Corner Three Slot Rail, 80 mm High x 40 mm Wide

    Sure, I just don’t quite understand what conclusion to draw from these things beyond acknowledgement. We also helped Germany and Japan rebuild and both are powerhouses of economic capability today.

    Not sure why we would have suffered in such a fashion, we weren’t one of the original belligerents in either war and both Hitler and Japan pulled us into WWII. While I hold the military’s action in...
