Dear Susan,

With Bob in mind, I had already told "Kugelblitz" that we have someone who 
could give them professional advice on the construction of a ship should 
they decide to go ahead.  They are
presenting their outline to Channel 4 and, if commissioned, will go 
ahead.  The stumbling block
is always cash.

As you know, we made a model here which was subsequently shipped to the 
States for
exhibition purposes but I've since lost trace of it.  I had hoped that it 
would be housed in
the Sinclair Centre at Caithness as it is the only thing which is left of 
my 10,000 donation
to the venture.
