Told you I found it John.  You ALWAYS have something on the bench I just have to look around sometimes to find you/it.  I read the comment (Chris?) about you being 1 week into the build.   Just shaking MY head at that.   Oh, and yes John, it's VERY cool.  cheers

Wow, the contrast of the white against the candy is amazing. Nicest paint job I have seen.
