    Re: Sands of the Kalahari

    There is another movie, but I can't recall the name...I can't even remember the star of the movie! The setting was in Namibia at Jan Oelofse Safari; Roy Weatherby had a good relationship with Jan.

    Re: New b&c paint pic.

    If you paint your own, be sure you top coat it with either a satin or gloss clear coat for durability. If you don't, it'll be a bit worse for wear over time. Do it right the first time.
