I have about 65 kits in my closet in the 6 months that ive been lurking, so expect to see Projects from me every once in awhile. I can make a list and supply pics of all my kits if you guys want. Ill also be posting my other finished projects soon (Ducati 916, 41 Willys, and Ford Flipnose)

Also want to say...Thank you! to all of AF for inspiring me to return to this hobby. Thank You! for the FAQ, its where I learned lots of stuff on modeling. You guys all seem like a really cool and talented bunch.

That is absolutely elite! I have yet to see a botched job when someone uses SMS carbon fiber, is it that easy to use?

Great model man!!
