Hey Guys, This is a commission build for a 60th birthday present,
I'm not one for building stuff to part with, I get too attached to them.
Any how I knocked this one up in about 5 days, but a few very late nights.
it's the AMT White Road Boss, ultra basic kit, with super ultra basic instructions. 
a few parts did not make the cut, so they fell off my bench into the bin.
I hope you like!

Very nicely executed, especially the weathering, very subtle but very realistic at the same time !

Here down under knocked up also means got it pregnant among other things, we also use it as in "here's one I knocked up earlier" or maybe "here's one I turned out earlier" would be less confusing.
I think the difference in countries brings out the differences in phrases and meanings, I know a "fanny" in Australia isn't what it is in America, the same as "thongs" ;)
