My repair parts for the Hetzer should arrive
tomorrow 7/8.  I can have her operational by 8/9
but not the AML armored car.

If you can convince Will Montgomery to stop at
your place for a B&B session on 8/9, I might
be able to drive out to Dayton for a one-on-one
demo battle.

Have you had any response from other builders
in Ohio, Indiana, Kentucky or Michigan?
