Roger another amazing figure.  Thanks for sharing it with us.  Just a hint though from a friend on another board the word is Tar heels   two words. 

As to the accent the first time I was on my way to England I was on the Calais to Dover ferry.  My friend and I were chatting with some crewmen.  We had been on the Continent for some time and were excited to be where we would understand the language again.  Well I spent an hour saying excuse me please , could you repeat that again.  The gentlemen were Irish, Northumbrian, Corwallian and a Scots .  Their accents were so thick to my Californian ear I could only understand half of what they were saying .

keep the pictures of the models coming .
