that is very kind of you Chris, everyones support has just been overwhelming, really have no way to describe how all of the great comments have meant to me, it really is very humbling to say the least, hope to be half as good as the big names in this awesome hobby someday!

Hey Bill and Corey - Great job both of you. It was nice seeing your work in the mag which happens to be one of the best issues to date - at least in my eyes. I like Marcos' Mustang too! Great issue!
