Here is a link to the AACA Forums. Talk about dedication to a craft. This build is all scratch built from copper, brass and other materials. I am amazed at it. You might want to go to the beginning as I linked 30 pages after the first post.

I've used his stuff as "Real or Model" subjects. He's the kind of guy that makes all the rest of us look like hacks!  :lol:

Yes, he's an amazing craftsman and modeling engineer. You can find a little more detail on the Lincoln at scalemotorcars.com. This link started when he was already 2 years into it (over a year ago). He's up to 54 pages and probably has another year or two to go.

This guy out-Wingroves Wingrove. His Toronado and Avanti are the most spectacular models I've ever seen. Actually I've only seen photos but hope I get to see them here sometime.

Hemmings Daily just did an article on this Lincoln build. Roger says the build will probably take 10 years in all.

Makes me want to put all mine away and just watch him build his.

Jeez...talk about skills...not to mention taking time to post pictures on multiple forums, it seems! Maybe he doesn't sleep?

I've been following his lincoln build for about a year now.

He's my main inspiration for my deuce build.
