      I'm scheduling a maintenance window tonight starting at 9PM Pacific Daylight time. Might be down for a while, so you west coasters should plan on building something tonight.

Not a lot to add to the compliments that hasn't been said.  This is simply a beautifully crafted model. The only problem I see is it is not living at my house!

:P I know right?  I have that problem too, specifically with FabbricaP's Ferrari 250 GTO (I have only 4 different unbuilt kits of that car).

My mom received the model Christmas Eve.  :D  She found another photo of them sitting in the car.  I told her that I wanted to go to the Grand Canyon to research the spot to do a diorama, so not really finished after all.

Great story, and an incredibly well-built  model. It's always impressive when something with the amount of scratchbuilding that you put into this looks as clean as this does. Breathtaking!

Seeing that you have posted here over 9,100 times, appreciate you, and everyone else's compliments!

I have started a diorama for this car, based on going to the Canyon last day of 2017, took lots of reference photos of the exact spot.  Stay tuned.....
