Your scratch building is amazing, the tiny details are so cool. I like to scratch build things in plastic, but after seeing your work I think I will just say I screw up things in plastic now.

it's probably a good that I most likely will never get to see this in person because I would inevitably spend close to half a day looking at it and saying "WOW" at all the amazing work and details you have created on this build.

 

BRAVO sir!

Randy-

  This project continues to get more amazing with each piece.  Are you planning on taking it to GSL when it is done?  It would certainly be a runaway for best of show.

I've wanted to comment before but just couldn't find words. Your work is amazing, most can't do that with plastic let alone metal.
