here here!!! would love to learn that, even thou i just own a lathe need to save up for the mill now, and i agree when someone else said earlier you should get featured in the mcm mag on maching skills very tight and totally awesome work.

hey Darren, you can do all this stuff on your mill, do some research on it, I used my lathe before I got my mill on my last build, thanks for looking in!

I'd bet with the skills you have shown us all, you could probably learn it fairly easily.
Then, your models WOULD be blowing small children over. LOL.

I had the pleasure of seeing this at local show this weekend and drooled all over it. I tried to find you the builder but the people that said they knew you couldnt find you. Wanted to just stick it in my pocket and run off very outstanding pics dont do the justice. Thanks for coming down to KS and showing it off as well as that gorgeousdragster
