Rick,

Very impressive and very ambitious! Have you any photo's closer up? I would like to have a look at some of the details. They may help me with some of my own ideas for a build that I have ongoing.

Good Luck with the rest of the build and keep us posted.

Best Wishes

Dave

Rick,

This is exceptional work! Superb standard and some great ideas. I would never have thought about installing real studs to the wheels and the brake shoes, just great. I shall be watching out for this one definately!

Good Luck with the rest of the build.

Best Wishes

Dave

This is one of those kits you have to see in person to truly apreciate, Rick has done some really cool stuff to it, I think he needs some serious therapy. He is a sick, sick, SICK, man.......Jim

Nope, he aint even started to get serious with it YET, it's still pretty much outa-da-box still, there's a bloody lot more he could do to it, if he really tries hard enough.

Done it all before, like 20 year ago, still got a few pics, that's if anybody is interested.
