Many thanks, guys!  Sorry to have not posted glory pics yet- here are a few.  I'm in week 4 of the flu and just can't seem to get over it- poor excuse, I know.  ;)    I also needed to step away a bit after 20 months on the same dealio.   I have started a new thread over in dioramas- take a look here: /forums/t/133231.aspx

Wow, Chuk...

As usual, an incredibly entertaining thread...and again, as usual, a very impressive build.

Thanks, man...for taking so much time and effort to document this build and add some fun to what you're showing us.

You also show us that pretty much anything is possible...

Thanks again, Brother.  Oh, by the way...Emma is impressed.

Tree

Cheers, LeeTree

Travel To quote the great Jeff Spicolli:

'Awesome... totally awesome!' & 'Ahhh Gnarly!'

You photography is top notch yet I have one small request.Hmm

How about a photo shoot outdoors in natural light without the green hobby mat as a back drop? It really allows the true colors to be enjoyed to their fullest. 

Thanks

Jason

Chukw I am almost sad to see this journey coming to a close. Its been like a collage course, Model Building 101, through Model Finishing 136 at the Improv. I learned a huge amount from this build and was totally entertained at the same time. My builds have improved because you shared this with us all, it was explained and illustrated to perfection, and so easy to understand and put into practice even I could take advantage of what I learned here. 

I hope you one day put this in book form or maybe at the very least do an article for FSM.

Thank you Sir I learned a lot and got to see a beautiful build completed.

PS Cant wait to see what you come up with next to take up my Sunday evenings. 

Randy So many to build.......So little time

That is just awesome work!  I really enjoy following your WIP posts.  When I open the box of my next model project I always envision it coming out like so many that I see on here BUT it never finishes that way.LOL 

I do always seem to learn something new with each one and love doing it.

Another masterpiece. Your skills, technique, methods, and attention to detail are second to none.

Regarding the nex, I'm sure that you already have it all picked out and are merely keeping the FSM world in suspense, but my 2 cents, I would like to see a 1/32 offering, or one of the 3 Tamiya Do-335s. (Preferably the Do-335B-2, kit # 61088).

But I digress, Bow Down, I bow to you good Sir.

Toast, Dave

Outstanding build sir. I await to see this in Reader Gallery. I think Manny is jealous....

I think you should build a Monogram B-29, or a Tamiya P-47D. Toss up.
