Awesome DC! That was a quick build but the results are outstanding as usual. Love all the little details. As always, thanks for sharing!

Not building the same as everybody else is what makes us unique, and your one unique kinda guy Virgil!!! Definitely different, but fun too. Love that amp.

Turned out great Doc !! I believe you said this is all in acrylic ? Is there a matt finish that you spray on top of the finished product as you would with gloss finishes on enamsls or lacquers ? Great job !!!

Another awesome build Doc!
When do you ever get time to sleep!

This is some very nice work.... I think Nato Black and several of the other Tamiya military colors are overlooked and that is really too bad.....IJN green is another great one for a 1950's light green color and matches a lot of stock colors for the period.... I am also going to try Nato Green for a 32 highboy with a Nato Black chassis.....Nato Black is still one of my favorites....

this build turned out fabulous Doc, I love every thing about it, weathering is spot on!

Thank you, Bill and Bill. Yes, Nato black is well represented here in my paint room.

Your builds really inspire me, man!
I showed this to some friends who don't build kits...
they thought it was 1:1
I hope that one day, with a lot of practice and a bit of luck, I can build half as well as you

Way COOL build. Love the crank spreader and the work you did on the grill/radiator area. Very Rat!
