this was written by a guy I've worked with on some Hirst Art molds... via Castle kits. I thought it was very interesting to know someone who wrote a book, much less...probably read it too! I don't have a lot of time to read

He's writing about PT109 now.

it's 6 degrees of Kevin Bacon...
I saw some links from Outpost Eagle with some casting...OE sells me some castings, then later sells me some molds. My particular set of skills being to grow along with my interest in the molds from Hirst Arts. Hirst Arts sells a sandbag mold, and I really liked that mold! I begin to cast these sandbag emplacements, and draw attention from Mr. Martin. Mr. Martin has a license agreement with Hirst Arts, and ask to use my pictures for his site... Castle Kits. We begin to email, and I accept his request to use my pixs. 50 emails later...he turns out to be a nice guy, helps me out...I help him out...I buy some bulk stuff from him, and he'll send me some extra stuff. He's also into publishing, and had wrote the book on the Gettysburg topic. And that brings us to this thread. If you would like a signed copy of the book, I can ask him for one. just let me know. :)
