Thankfully my hero, amazing artist and Mensch: Jane Prophet has graciously offered to host us visit the labs at City University of Hong Kong to laser cut the replacement part to repair the submarine. I was so stressed all yesterday. Jane called me in the late afternoon and connected me with her Senior Assistant Ivan. I am truly fortunate to have such generous colleagues who can make opportunities like this happen.
Ivan is the man; we worked out issues with the file and he confirmed with me. He also gave me a listing for an acrylics place in HK, so if I need to totally rebuild this tube we may have options.
We will be heading to CUHK at 11AM tomorrow. Wish us luck!!
