  • @68rs327 – as I said, your proposal as an app (simulated) on a computer/tablet would work. It would also be possible to make miniatures of the actual items, but today this would be time consuming and even challenging to find the parts.

  • @68rs327 Sounds like a nice car. That was when a Camaro was a real Camaro. That kind of makes a person sound old but maybe I am just figuring out how old people think.
