Thanks Donnie for working with me to get this re-posted. By rebuilding the site, I realized how much work I put into it and was able to enjoy it again.
Thanks Bill. it is the best one I have built to date and I enjoy looking at it in the case.
The months of research and extra expense of after market items to increase its accuracy seem worth it in the end. When you consider how long it takes to build, the cost of this over time is actually cheap entertainment.
With all the head scratching I did trying to get everything right, I am surprised that I still have hair. Of course, the color is a lot grayer now.
Happy modeling,
Gary Maple
