Incredible artwork. A few of these pictures could easily be mistaken for a real one parked in a museum.

Thanks a bunch, I appreciate it!

Incredible work. Your attention to detail is outstanding. I really like the rounds rack and your weathering technique on the floor. 

 

Semper Fi.

Howdy Manny,

 

I just can't build something out of the box, I just gotta add a little something here and there.   I'm glad I found the ammo cause it really adds to the character of the interior.  Shoot, I didn't even use all of them.  I sent a handful to a friend who also has this kit.  Thank you for checking it out and commenting Manny.

I'm in work on mine as well.  Got a ton of photos for detailing.

Just an FYI on the engine. The 1st, 4th, 5th and 8th spots are not spark plugs but fuel primer funnels.  You would actually pour fuel directly into each cylinder to prime it.

Yes sir, you got that right.  I snagged some tiny beads from one of my wife's jewelry making kits to simulate the priming cups, and added some brass, photo etch handles to them.

 

Have fun with your build :)!
