Impressive!!! I agree with the above comments about selling sets of the valve covers. I would definately be interested in a few pairs if you ever decide to. With what you have posted so far it's easy to see the bar is about to be raised!!

I have to agree with my friend Brian on this build. I love seeing the builds of you modelers with such great talent. Trouble is when I go back to my projects I think to myself " Why bother ? "

I know. The dime is really 10" in diameter! The whole thing's a Photoshop! Seriously, this is Wingrove level stuff. That's not you name is it? I'e never encountered work like this before...and you're sharing the steps not just the finished product! Excellent excellent excellent!
