Sorry for your loss Snake. Sudden death doesn't give you a chance to prepare for it. At my age (75) I've experienced a lot of long term illness resulting in death but to have it happen so unexpectedly not very often.
I'm glad to see this and the Corvette back on track. I rarely comment but your builds are all like tutorials for models I would love to build. The attempt to build as close to reality as possible is what is truly impressive.
