Hope all is well with Randy.

His build remains incredibly inspiring, no matter how many times I re-read each and every post; would love to see it through to completion!!

He's an immensely talented modeler ... who truly scratchbuilds.

I was hoping there was a build update, but now that I've learned Randy has been MIA for 6 months I hope all is well too.
Someone/anyone able to contact Randy to see if all is OK?

Fantastic!
This is the benchmark...the level of skill I aspire to.
So much detail....
I'm seriously considering crossing the Atlantic to see this, if you exhibit it.

I am now frowning at my bench and feel a little disappointed with my own efforts....!

When ever this thread get's bumped up and I'll ask again:

Anyone been in contact with Randy? Is it true he hasn't been on the forum in a long time? Is everything OK?

Granted, this build is epic, but more important how's the builder doing? Long-term absence is concerning....especially from a popular modeler in the mist of a project like this.
