John, I would be SOOO proud to call that one mine.  It's just a beautiful build.  I couldn't wait to see you put down the paint and you sure didn't disappoint.   Each new build you complete becomes one of my favorites.  Congratulations, tim

Unbelievable is right....not really because I watched you build it, but simply amazing. I mean no offense to anyone on this site as there is talent beyond mention, but you sir, in my opinion, are one of the absolute best.

Speechless (for a change).

Yeah well, that's out the window.

First I was floored when I saw the base paint. When I recovered from that, you punched me with the decals. Then I got a left hook with the pilot figure.

Now you know why I donated the figure. Most outstanding models are fine on their own. This one needed to be honored by Gary's presence.

I'm glad he's standing as opposed to being in the seat, hidden when the body is down.

You and his daughter should be proud Bro.

Truly inspiring work my friend. One of the many things I like best about your builds is nothing is molded in. Every single part on the real car has been accurately portrayed as a single piece in your replica. Great stuff. Another one of my favorites of yours, and there are many.
