I actually got this as a gift for my birthday - unexpected. The video quality is not too good, but it does have good information on it.

Worth adding to a Thompson collectors library, IMHO.

2dogs: Welcome to the wait. We can all relate to the excitement. It is somewhat like an expectant father and his first child - not a lot you can do to speed it up, but I found pacing back and forth seems to help. rolleyes.gif
