  14. Impressive! Very impressive. So, tell us how many long hours did that take, or is it over so long a period that its not possible to determine?
    You are an artiste'

    Zeph, as others have said that I so well detailed and constructed. Truly an excellent job to remind us of yesteryear! Well done. Now you better get busy and start dragging them out of the junkyard and rod/restore them before some bugger scraps them all!!! I have just over 110 kits in my attic and I'm retiring Jan 7th. I guess I should start buying glue and paint...

    I at first thought for a second that was real. Then I thought it was something I wouldn't care about. Wrong, from here it looks pretty phenomenal........you have serious skills.

    Incredible.
    All you'd need is an old school bus full ofhubcaps and it'd look exactly as I remember the old junk yard I used to love to go to.

    Thanks for sharing.
