When I win the Lotto and open the National Model Car museum, you and John Teresi are going to cost me a small fortune.  Wow, my mind fills with positive expletives and accolades when I admire this build from tire to tire.

I need to break out the Thesaurus to see how many positive explanations I can find for this build. How about awesomspectacufascinatfreakinamazing. That sounds good.

Can't find the words to express how impressive and well done that is.  Incredible is a start, but not nearly enough. Wow, just wow!

Nice build, what type of lathe and milling machines do you use?
