I studied a lot of ideas and examples Beck. There is hardly a jar between 250 and 300 liters, which I have not studied! :-)
Thank you, that there's this portal!
Furthermore, I thank Malawi-Guru.de - where I know much about the fish, and when Fischauge.net - where I have the exquisite suggestions for Modulbau
