    Maybe you were using the VB to wash your hands afterwards?

    Is that from the book "101 things to do with Victoria bitter OTHER than drink it"?
    " When you're chewing on life's gristle, don't grumble, give a whistle "

    Dave ive just spotted your relic EK's ,how well do they look against the background panoramic i take it mexican beer is a referance to this VB bitter/lager being brewed across the imaginary border in melbourne ,well if it was good enough for paul hester then its good enough for you mate

    James, Victorians are Mexicans, Queenslanders are banana benders, Tasmanians are tasmaniacs, South Australians are crow eaters and they are all eastern staters to us sandgropers! Hope that clears it up for you mate! Lol

    Thanks for the comment on the relic EK's, the best thing about all of those relic medals is that they were all found during building works on the old reich chancellery site, so the pic of the ruined chancellery behind the medals fits perfectly with the display. I really like knowing that these things came from that site, it gives them a real place in history.

    Well finally after several months (about six of them) I've finally finished the cabinet. All that's left now is to fit out the internals which will consist of acrylic stands and labels. I'm generally pretty pleased with the results although there are a few things I would do differently knowing what I know now. It is all wired up, the lights work and the switch is mounted on the side of the cabinet just inside the doorway to the entrance of the room, the opposite side to where the power outlet is. That caused a few dramas but it's all sorted now. It makes the room a lot more organised and tidy which is what I was hoping for and I now have a purpose built space to display my Berlin gear. I'm now thinking about making something similar on the other wall for my Aussie gear but I'll have a break first, I've got a few other projects on the go that need to be finished before I start another or my missus will shoot me!

    I will attach a few pics when the internals are completed so for now these will be the last pics for a while. Thanks to all the boys who were following the build and for your kind comments, I appreciate the support gents,
