    The picture actually has some bearing on my online name. I arrived at Air Station New Orleans fresh from AT (avionics technician ) school with the lowly rank of E3. Shortly found out that there were not enough flight orders for all the enlisted men that were stationed there which was important because you didn't get flight pay unless you had flight orders even if you were actually flying. OK...pay your dues and all of that. You also had to fly at least four hours a month to get your flight pay. I shortly found out that some of the higher ranks like E7 and above were taking a few training flights a month to get there four hours. They didn't do anything on these flights except sit in the back of the helo! That really frosted my but so I announced that if I wasn't getting flight pay I wasn't going to take any routine flights. This made me very popular with my fellow low ranking enlisted men but not so much with the higher ranking guys. Always was surprised I didn't suffer any consequences from my actions. Guess they couldn't do anything officially but there would have been other ways but nothing ever came of it. Because of all of this my wife staring calling me Crusader Rabbit after the old cartoon series. When I was looking for an online name I changed it to Flaming Rabbit since I didn't want to steal Mr Crusader Rabbits name.

    So there you have it. And you guys thought Flaming Rabbit was a reference to something dirty didn't Ya.
    Nice story and cool shades...

    The clock just ticked over to a next day, and again non compliant, but I guess it'll have to pass as I've just finished it and I kinda like it! My first sort of 'real' gilt!

    The previously posted hand engraved gilt dial, made from a cheap Corgeut dial, then a Corgeut case, that was from a GMT, but due to crown taring issues I put it aside and only now found the time to assemble a different crown in to it. Same with the hands, as slight imperfections are actually desirable on a vintage watch, the old hands container came in handy (pun intended)... The lume was first upgraded, then downgraded with some some mixture of boiled in coffee and tea. Again drilled the lugs, and fitted some shoulderless fatbar springbars.

    The movement is a 28800 SK (Starking) 24J that I bought a whole watch for at the price of a DG2813 movement. This movement is almost identical, except for being high beat (and different hands size)Name:  WP_20190129_00_13_47_Proe.jpg

    Guys what a Monday tons of cool watches and great builds some new members too! My donut is overfilling!

    Some of my favorite things. Today a Pet Nat wine and Parmigiano Reggiano. Parmigiano Reggiano as you know has many applications this was out to dose the store brand mac and cheese my 3 year old was eating so my wife and I could sneak a bit before our dinner. It brought back memories but was pretty terrible before a generous parm addition.
