"Make the details pop out"

Think even without additional paint  the details pop! , and the lettering makes it



Thanks guys!
Looking forward to finishing this one up.
Will be nice to put this together permanently!
Right now everything is in place but nothing is secured (for painting purposes).

The drill press looks to be a real challenge!

Looks great, Marty! That will be an impressive shop someday.

I like your work - just the details makes the model!
Why are the two wheels in the middle not parallel to each other?


The wheels are crooked because they are not secure.
Need to add bushings.
The model is not "assembled" just put together for pictures.
Needs to come apart for finishing.
More soon.

Very nicely done Marty... most impressive. Looking forward to seeing it in its finished state.
