Ya…….I sure did learn my lesson on that deal……..but.I fixed it and had the last laugh……..you know the old saying "HE WHO LAUGHS LAST….LAUGHS THE LONGEST OF ALL"……. :)

 

I always thought when I was younger that it was "He who laughs last....has the last laugh......"  :huh:  :lol:

 

Absolutely stellar build John ! Just mind blowing beautiful.....!

I'm completely and utterly blown away by this creation of yours lil' brother. I can't believe I've missed this thread. I just went through it really quickly by only looking at the pictures. I'll go through it again tonight and read every word as I want to know the details on making the details.

 

Outstanding stuff John. We're not worthy.
