Wow, Bill. You are continuing the awesomeness for sure! The breathers are incredible, my friend.


2nd that !

Those filters are going to be one of those details you miss the first time and then go back and say "OMG, how'd he do that!"

Love the ridges in the screen. That would look way cool with some red behind it.

I've left for about a year due to things happening in real life. I can't wait to get back to modeling and am totally inspired by this epic build of yours Bill. Your updates over the last year have just amazed me to no end. You sir, are a true craftsman and artist. Keep it up!

Bill, I am new to this forum and just went through all your progress pictures of this Cuda. This is the most incredible model I have ever seen. Your attention to detail is breathless.

Makes me want to throw all my modeling equipment away. I can only dream of achievements like this. Thank you so very much for sharing this part of your passion. I am just awestruck.

hi Tim, that is very kind of you to say, that is exactly as I felt when I first seen Wingrove, Randy Derr, and many others who have created model's in this type of construction, I had all ways "thought" I could do some thing like this, so here I am trying my very best to do it, don't let this discourage you, the object is to enjoy modeling, no matter how you achieve it, just build at your own comfort level and enjoy it, thanks so much Tim

Clayton, it takes so much of my time to make my own parts, that I don't have time to make any for some one else, lol maybe some day, thanks

hi Del, thanks so much, hopefully it will look ok with some paint on it, I will have a photo album with the progress pics in it for those who would like to see when I take it to shows

thanx Jon, for those interested in the header project, he got them back from the ceramic coaters, I think they look freakin awesome!
