Amazing stuff Bill. Now I want you to go out to your workshop and gather up all of your paint cans and jars and throw them out. Don't think about it, just go do it because it'd be a shame to hide all of this wonderful metal work.

You have more talent in your pinky finger then a jar of peanut butter has peanuts

managed to get a little work done so far this week end, got some breathers made up, the ends were turned on the lathe and some very fine wire mesh for the actual breather, you can actually see through them
I made up the core support out of square brass tubing, I wanted to be able to assemble it easily when the time came, but yet still be strong so I pinned the frame extensions to the frame and soldered smaller tubing on the core support that slides nice and tight into the extensions, seems to work very well
thanks for all of the support from all who have commented, really do appreciate it, thanks for looking

Bill, I am new to this forum and just went through all your progress pictures of this Cuda. This is the most incredible model I have ever seen. Your attention to detail is breathless.
Makes me want to throw all my modeling equipment away. I can only dream of achievements like this. Thank you so very much for sharing this part of your passion. I am just awestruck.

Most amazing build I have see. Great Work.

Stunning Bill, simply stunning. Been watching this build since it was a baby. Or is that, since I've been a baby? Either way, love watching the progress.
