Hey John...

This can't be True... Mr. All Plastic to make it look like simulated steel !!! Now using Brass and Aluminum Substance ???

I knew that the day was comming, but did not know when... Once you start working with the stuff... The possibilities are now endless... You have now raised the BAR... Where you are NOW in a "LEAGUE OF EXTRAORDINARY BUILDERS".... Great Subvject and a Bad Ass build so far...
