Well done, Brian - congratulations on her completion! A very nicely done model and, as has been said already, it must really bring back great memories whenever you look at her. Lovely job – you must be very proud and happy!

I bet you this one gets a nice spot in the living room. To be able to always see you youth, what more could you want. Nice build.

you'll definitely have to post pictures of the case and how she looks in it. to answer your question....yes it does! I've celebrated many times already, in the short time I've been building wood kits. there's no bigger thrill, than completing the first one though, so it seems that every one there after, is aimed at peaking the interest even more. congrats!
