Right guys. I would have always seen the lack of concentricity and kick myself for not having fixed it on time.

In the direct comparisation one can percept that its`s now centric and has the better proportions and impression than before. It`s good to alter incorrect parts - even when only the craftsman notes the failure...

Derek and Thomas: Well, it was more than just cosmetic. 11mm difference is way out of cosmetic.

I decided to cut out the misaligned part and make it new. For the cut I made a little adapter for my Dremels multi tool attachment which allowed a precise (well, sort of) cut at a constant distance from the edge. Then I glued the replacement piece and fillered the seam.
Result is almost invisible, with a little more filler it will be invisible I hope.

The later German and British colonialism were quite different. In toto one can say, that the German colonialsm was rigorous, but the justice between white and colored people was almost equal. In Deutsch - Ostafrika (Tansania) before 1914 great projects were startet - for example the railway between Daressalam and Tanganijka Lake, the alphabetism of the colored people, many schools were established. The rights between the tribes were not touched.
Also the much longer British colonialism has made great advances at the infrastructure and the system of communikations. As far I know the system of administration between German and British colonialism was different. It seems, that the juridical differents of white and colored people in the British colonies were more evident.
But this all is a long time ago - today it seems that Germany will go into direction of a failed state because of wrong and lack of reponsibiliy politics and administration.

So the locals were unable to differentiate between British and 'german' colonialism in East Africa?!

Thanks so much for spending so much time on addressing my tedious questions...I will take it from here as a bit of research.

Hi Jurgen,
very neat and exact work. How many mm are the difference of the axis of the paddle shaft and the center of axis of the wheel box? May be, it`s only less - if it is, like Derek wrote - it`s more a matter of cosmetic.
