Really really impressive build Charles. Seeing your WIP is even more impressive. Have you seen joe`s build. It is also really fantastic. Seems you two are now the top scratchbuilders whose work i really enjoy looking at.

Thanks Murdo. Jason, my next project will be a 1/24 truck with trailer/container...super detailed.. But it wouldn't be until some time later this year or next as I've just moved in with my girl in a small apartment until we find a bigger place to live.
