Looks Great Kenn!   To look at it finished, you wouldn't imagine all the work that's underneath!  Thanks for taking us along for the build.  Very entertaining and educational.

It's hard to comprehend this was entirely created out of almost nothing and didn't exist prior. You are an artist.

Yeah, it looks like it could be new tooling kit by Revell or Moebius Models... Absolutely incredible work, and someone says that it is not possible to scratchbuilt car bodies, because they are too round. :D  It's incredible, I can not say anything negative about it. The finishing is very nice too. Oh and did I mention that the subject is excellent also.

 

I build what I can, but looks like Kenneth builds what he wants! B)

Superb build, and considering it was made totally out of plastic sheet, I'd love to be able to do something like this ....
