Nice, John! You're moving right along. I better get those tires done, ASAP! The scratch-building on those levers and wheel looks incredible.

John.. Looking good man. Nice work on all of the levers and handles. Always love your scratch building. Love the touch of the wood grips. She is sure coming along and looks like you are almost ready to jump to the engine I see. You are going to have this done in no time at all. Outstanding work.
