I've been calling this a lesson in craftsmanship for pages now, and it keeps getting better. At this point are you going to wait for the upcoming Revell new-tool 'Cuda body , or are you going to bend & beat that puppy into shape yourself?

Bill, please carry on. This is friggen epic....

Everytime I see an update I have to pick my jaw off the floor, the detail just blows my mind away.

This is such an awesome piece of work but you should start photographing it with a coin or something we all can relate to next to it for a size comparison. Anyone that didn't know better would never believe that rack is only about the size of a toothpick.

Bill......"WOW", I am speechless........ :)

thanks so much my friend!

 

I thought the "alien" thing was just a joke, but now, well, I'm not so sure.

 

That is one ambitious piece of modeling my friend.

you never know Alyn, all ways appreciate it

 

did you go to school for design and machining stuff? 

hi Jake, no I have never had any experience with any of this stuff before my last build, been in collision repair all my life, so I have worked with metal a lot, just not anything like this, thanks for asking

 

I've been calling this a lesson in craftsmanship for pages now, and it keeps getting better. At this point are you going to wait for the upcoming Revell new-tool 'Cuda body , or are you going to bend & beat that puppy into shape yourself?

Bill, please carry on. This is friggen epic....

hi John, yes I am wanting the new Cuda kit, I have all ways liked the grille on the 70 a little better personally, I really don't see me making the entire body out of metal, heck I have never cut the doors open on a model before :huh: thanks bro

 

Everytime I see an update I have to pick my jaw off the floor, the detail just blows my mind away.

thanks so much Jonathan

I appreciate it Cesar

I was thinking the same thing. This build has become so BLAH_BLAH_BLAH_BLAH fascinating its going to be amazing by the time it's completed. There's so much more being done compared the the rail, and THAT was fabulous......

This is so cool to watch come together.

It looks to me like you'll need some heat shields for the steering gear. With your skill, that shouldn't be too much of a problem.

 

Fantastic work!

thanks for stopping in Darryl, those are some very kind words, I can't tell you how much it means, it is probably good that all of us here don't live in the same town, our wives would be upset that we were all ways at some ones house talking models :unsure: thanks so much Darryl!
