Try a rootbeer float with condensed milk and some vanilla ice cream, that should put you over the 6000 calorie mark, enough energy to see you through our next 3 builds.

Hey, no sleeping during this build. Get to the bench, it's the Sunday before the Big Bird lands on the table.

I like the worn paint technique a lot.... I have used very fine steel wool to do something similar but I like yours a bit better.... not sure I will keep going with the wool.... but it does work.....

Ya, he has not posted in several days and that is unlike him. I have had no reply from a PM I sent him which is also not like him. Maybe computer problems ? Hopefully things are ok and he will be back with us soon.
