Got bad news yesterday that my friend, Dick Wunderlich ,passed away unexpectedly during the big snow in Chicago.
You may recall Dick's big 1" scale railgun that he had at the NAMES and Cabin Fever shows.
Dick's work was impecable and ranged from woodworking to machining to casting. He could do it all.
Most important, he was a wonderful man, who tried to help all those around him in any way he could.
Last month I had the pleasure to ride from Chicago to York,PA in a van and sit next to Dick, whose soft voice and
vast mechanical knowledge will always be remembered. Besides his famous Railgun that Dick displayed in shows,
he had numerous finely detailed scale Artillery pieces he also made from scratch.
I am going to miss this guy...and I know others will too
I have found a photo of his Cabin fever display(2007) that was posted here(HSM), and wish to repost it,
although I do not have the authors permission.
I am sure he understands, in light of the situation.
