I knew you'd put the Teresi Touch on the figure. I also know we'll have no problem believing it's Gary.

Luvin' the plumage.  Also digging the cockpit. It all looks so, well........real.

Among all of the incredible details in this update, what strikes me most are the front tires. I know tires after 30 years in the business.

THAT is what normal tire wear looks like. Not simply sanding down the tread. Wear that thing out to give it age.

Another Teresi masterpiece. I can't even fathom the awesomeness of this build. Each one of your builds is better than the last and I would never think that's possible.
