    Totally agree with Brian C and the others who think the model should be displayed with an open hood. The engine is the signature feature, and your work on it is a masterpiece.

    I thought you were going to outdo yourself again, and I was right.

    "Into the Wild" by LP (Laura Pergolizzi). You'll recognize the title track from an insurance commercial of a couple of years ago with a pretty rock climber ascending to the stop of a stone pinnacle, with lyrics saying "Somebody left the gate open." This woman has octaves, and the album is all winners. "Tokyo Sunrise" is a highlight.

    While the wall looks like a modeler's diorama, little things like the door lock button tell me it's real.

    Just curious, but how does a rare icon like the Bentley fit into a street scene with the others?

    Some are still available at Amazon for about $18 each. Not available currently as a set.

    My favorite was a six-episode series, "Victory by Design." It was the history of six  great marques  -- Alfa, Jaguar, Maserati, Aston, Ferrari, one I forget -- featuring host Alain de Cadenet putting existing survivors through their paces. You could really see and feel the driving experience.

    My intent was to use it for the external brake assembly on the 1/14 Bugatti T59, but it's really too big. Should work for a 1/12 drive chain. There's not a lot to snap together since it comes with the links mostly assembled.

    As I recall, it took a week or two to receive mine.

    The Bond Bentley, a convertible coupe, would look more like a battleship gray version of one of these, closer to the one on the bottom. Note that there is a cover over its forward-mounted supercharger.

    Actually, no. It was a sport coupe/roadster with a fixed canvas top in the Fleming book. This kit is a Birkin Team Le Mans Bentley like the one owned by Ralph Lauren, and represented in the 1/12 kit.

    The firewall is outstanding.

    I had an MRI a few years ago, and it was one of the most excruciating experiences I've been through. Last week, my doctor wanted me to have an MRI; I declined.

    I don't know if you have an Earth Fare or Sunrise Market, but those are the last two places around here that have Indian sauces and seasonings.

    Nailed it. And you did a great job on the safety wires. Worth all your effort!
