It is on the internet.  Just search "Forgotten weapons" They are an auction site, but give great videos explain their  guns etc.  I found it very useful.

Sorry, thebolas, unless Iíve misspelt that. Wasnít it used by South American Indians originally?

That's better, thanks.  I don't know much about the bolas. Was it a hunting weapon to bring down animals?

I have a feeling it might have brought down either a few Spaniards, or at least their horses.

Talking of TV shows. Has anybody seen the Channel 5 series "The Great Model Railway Challenge" a very good concept and shows the problems we have all experienced one way or another doing shows and tables for events etc....
Giving teams 3 days to make a layout to use and show. Showing some modelling technical abilities and problems. Worth taking a look.

Good spot  there. Saw that Miles. Great fun. We can learn from those railway modellers.
