A question just popped in my feeble brain.
Does the pics you take help with the detail
or drive you into the "got to fix that" black hole.
Thanks John..

always awe inspired ..

James.......yes, pictures help 100% with scale and detail........it shows me mistakes that I make.......my eyes aren`t as good as they use to be.......the pictures also help with out of scale parts........sometimes I can fix mistakes .......sometimes its to late.......but,I live with it........thank you for your question.

John, I can't keep up with ya, last I knew you just finnished the F/C and now I see you got another model half done. This is looking great, love the way you incorporated folds in the seat belts, just like alot of "real world" belts would lay on some seats. Keep up the great work!

John, you're getting scary good. Fantastic use of color and texture in the interior, not to mention the detailing.
