Thank you all for your Kind words and for your complements my friends, This mean a lot to me and is what keeps me building and enjoying this hobby of ours and the great respect we have for each others builds. I just love building first, then building crazy stuff second. I love the challenge of making something greater then the last even thou it gets harder and harder to keep out doing myself every year. John Teresi you are the man and when you told me what you did at the show that was a blessing and a honor from one of the builders I look up to and whom sets the bar Pretty high. Thanks again my fellow model builders. Roger Hayes I will post some later on today of it closed up...
