I thought you'd like that HD cable trick! And - although I haven't really eyeballed it yet - the coarser, SCSI ribbon-cable might be good for 20/30mm cannon belts - or maybe 1/48 scale MGs.
As for the Hudson(s - there might be a second one brewing now), I'm jazzed up and working away on it, at this very moment.
What-up, on your bench, buddy? GIve a Happy Thanksgiving shout-out to all your Clan for me.
