  2. CH 19 liked Gav106's post in the thread LMS Patriot Project Updates.

  3. CH 19 liked Kylchap's post in the thread LMS Patriot Project Updates.

    The Patriot Project folks strike me as a dedicated and competent group who are building a new member of a successful but extinct class that many of us remember. The remembrance aspect inspires me too, particularly since their aim was to complete...
