I've been following along too and am still totally AMAZED at your fantastic skills, John. Unreal build.

How do you get so many pics in 1 post? I thought we're limited to just 5?

Absolutely stellar job John. Any time you can create a model that can be confused for the real thing you have accomplished a great feat. And not only the level of the build but what it represents makes this your best accomplishment to date, IMHO.

That is just incredible John! It really turned out great. I always like checking out your models and this one is over the top. The whole thing is fantastic but I've got to say the paint job and decals are superb. Keep 'em coming!

I think that says it very well. I have to admit that I'm still not quite to the point where I understand exactly what I'm seeing, despite following along on the build threads. There's some sort of conceptual leap happening here. The remarkable thing is that when you see them in-scale, as it were, as I do each year at the NNL West, they look just as convincing. This can only indicate that there's a faithfullness of detail and crispness that carries you as far as the eye can see (or the lense can focus). The large size of this particular model only emphasizes the depth of realism even more, making these particular pictures even more shockingly "real" than, say, the small rods or drag cars.

Bravo, John. So many beautiful textures, finishes and details to enjoy on this one. Thanx again for the pleasure you give us.
