    I’m sorry I didn’t mean to do that. I think the toys from that period are the best.
    I slapped together this background to your neat space gun.

    The original ads listed your space gun selling @ $1 in 1935.
    The one I have was selling for less. :rolleyes:

    Awesome! I'll post more toys and you can make cool backgrounds for them. Just kidding, but that looks a whole lot better than the background my ping pong table provided.

    I was in television news editing for a long time. Mostly beta format.
    Last few years went to computer chip cameras & editing.

    To say it was a “total nightmare” is putting it mildly.

    Especially when trying to finish the story for the 5 o’clock news
    & the computer crashes.

    I’m just beginning to comprehend the language of internet.

    I don’t have any sophisticated editors, just the computer &
    my stubborn attitude to keep at it til I’m satisfied....but I’m
    never satisfied. :mad: That’s the secret !
