    Thanks so much for the kind words Tom. Really appreciate you following along.
    Here's a couple of quick shots of my progress over this past weekend. Got the driver's side wooden panel done with the door just taped in place as I intend to have it open.

    The floor was painted black from underneath and treated with wood stain on the top. This will probably be painted or covered with aluminum sheet, not sure just yet.

    And lastly, the fenders and cowl were glued together and painted gloss black. I'll probably dull this down a bit, too glossy.

    Stay tuned, hope to get more done this long weekend.

    No thanks to the Orville moniker please. Over the weekend, I was able to get the driver's side wooden portion done with trimming around the windows and a door that will eventually be functioning. I also got the wood stained, the chassis and front body work painted gloss black. I'll post some pictures this evening.

    This thread is exactly one month old today and it has generated so much interest and good will towards other members here and I have to tip my hat to iBorg for proposing this idea. It has over 5,500 views, incredible.

    Oh man...I gotta get out more often. I completely missed this whole thread and its eight pages. I'm also chomping at the bit at what Bob has in store for us.

    I have the popcorn figured out and even have a little surprise for when it is on public display. More on that later when the build is almost complete. That'll be a while.

    Looks good Kurt. You've built a bunch of dio's since then.

    Here's those pictures I promised. This thing is so fiddlely and all three pieces need to be held together with clips. The challenger is mating up the cowl portion with the fender section and chassis.

    Thanks for your replies and interest Dan, Curt and Misha. I've spent a bit of time at the bench yesterday although it was Mother's Day. Trying to mate up the cowl, stretched frame and engine cover has me busy. I had to cut off the windshield portion of the one piece cowl and make a taller windshield area. I'll post a few pictures later tonight.
    Stay tuned.

    That explains it perfectly Tim. Soft Scrub huh? I never would have thought of that and I use that stuff all the time at home and at work. Soft Scrub and an old toothbrush work wonders. On with the plating.

    Tim - its hard to tell from the picture. I see some of the new 'practice' piece got plated smoothly but the other looks kind of rough or pitted. Is that how it looks to you in real life? Are you still leaning in the direction of using the previous 'brush' system? I'd also like to hear more about the new directions on the 'brush' system as that is the one i have and I wasn't happy with the results, as you know.

    Thanks for clicking and following along Mike. I'm bummed, I can't seem to get any bench time during the week. Hopefully this weekend.

    The first post in this thread is dated March 14th, 2011 and Chris said in that post he started this about a week ago. Six years and two months, about as long as I've known Chris. This thread is a 'must read' for anyone wanting to better their skills and and a 'how-to' on modeling innovation.
