I sure wish I could! That however is beyond my meager capabilities. Watching this get built was a thrill a minute! The closer this got to the finish line, the more I felt like I was witnessing modeling history here!

We are modelers - the same in spirit, in hunger to insanely buy newly released kits, hustlers in hiding our stash from our better halves and experts in using garbage as replacements for after-market parts.

That’s for sure… all that micro work and that base kick it way above my level… :headslap:

Thanks a lot guys!
Building a kit from your stash is like cutting the head off a Hydra, two more take it’s place.

Hah! All it takes is a steady hand, single minded determination even when the cat insists on being fed, and unlimited patience. Of course, my hands shake, and the cat always prevails. I do have patience, or is it that I am just rather old and tired?
