I was there to see this jewel take top honors at the Heartland Nationals Show in Overland Park, KS early this year. Just an amazing build!  Saw it again at a local show this fall and I feel that it looked better than it did before (again top honors).  I believe that time and the natural aging process of the machined parts and paint will do nothing but add to the realism it offers the viewer.

 

And just for a side note:  You should see the sorry old box Bill carries this thing around in.  :)
