Or, Chuck, someone who has been hording the one piece of information you need waits until you publish the article and then uses it to prove that your carefully researched work has come to the wrong conclusion.

I use
 
eSnipe

for bids on EBay.

I first decide the absolute maximum I am willing to pay and put in the eSnipe bid at that price.

I usually get the item for less.

Esnipe automatically puts my bid in 6 seconds before the auction ends.

Saved a huge amount of money using it.

Everything is looking good! Nice find on the window; I usually discover info like that after I have built it.

Hauk, Finding the details of that round window is a terrific bit of tenacity and luck. I love it when some detail I have almost given up looking for unexpectedly shows up.
Now when you build that window you'll KNOW it is correct, and that feels good.

Its a nice little detail. Especially since I am thinking that the completed scene will have a slightly cathedral-like mood. That window would not look out of place in a church!

Some progress on the roof trusses:



Several hundred GrandtLine nbws have been installed. I could not really believe my luck when I found around 600 of just the right type of nbws in one of my drawers!

Recently I also found a little piece of prototype information for the workshop. In this picture it is obvious that there is a round window high up on the wall in the back:



But i had no I idea what it looked like, as I have no drawings of the original building.  But then I found this image in a database online:



To my surprise it was possible to zoom in on the image to an extreme degree:



Examining the image close up it was possible to see the design on the window in question. It is of a quite unusual design of circles inside a circle, and I could never have guessed how it looked. Not exactly an earth-shattering discovery, but it is small discoveries like this that makes research fun.
