Thanks Mark,Dallas & Stu!

Hey Dallas,I think you mean Albert, not Alfred.
I just used a Q-tip,pulled off what I needed and glued it on his head.

Thanks for your kind comments guys!
Sorry I've been neglecting this thread lately.
Hope to get back to work on it soon!

Bruce,thanks for your kind offer,but I think the Foghorn sounds,would drive my wife over the edge,with this sound effects stuff.
She's already complaining about hearing ship whistles coming from the basement.

Greg,

Dig up a copy of the International Rules for the Prevention of Collisions at Sea, circa 1939 (I think they ran on 1923 rules, but I'm running on memory here now, and we all know how that goes) and look up the whistle signals. You should find a whole series of distinct signals you'll need to use whenever the R. A. Santos sails, some for leaving the pier and entering the channel, some for backing, some for proceeding and passing port-side-to, and so forth.

Armed with this information, you can prove that the noise is mandated by international treaty....

And then you can go pack for a motel for about a week....

Greg, what sort of scene would you want to model that would feature the mathematical objects made by the factory? Would a scene with a number of tools ready to be loaded in a truck be interesting?
