Hey Ron, I'm really liking your little green roadster and all of the choices you made for it. The car has a great period feel and look, and the steering looks like it worked out well and adds a lot to the presence of the model.
As far as forgetting the steering box goes...I do that kind of thing sometimes, or miss flaws in something. That's why I think the advent of digital photography is such a great tool for modeling. Imagine how much it would cost to develop negatives and get prints of all of these photos.
Thanks for the kind words about my roadster. I've honestly been wasting too much time lately and haven't got much building done at all. Need to change some bad habits.
