Garry Roux started a “friendly” competition between Bob Dickherber (member 8719) and Jim Zoellner (member 8364). At last count Bob came in with 7000+ pieces against Jim’s 5251. Jim went back to work. It was never Jim’s intention to let it be known what he was working on,however, here we are…. 

At the onset of the project, Jim gave it a one in ten chance to reach completion (xxxxx) glue interfaces, any one of which might fail and boom). Having survived this far, he still only gives it a 50/50 chance of survival. 

Right now, there are ????? pieces (don’t want Bob to have an advantage) 90 rings and it is 17 inches in diameter and 12 ½” tall.  

Stay tuned for updates.
