Skin work is almost done!

A brief update! Here are some photos of my recent skin progress!
All the skins are on, and now we're just awaiting some detail pieces. I have been currently building some center vents. I'd post a photo of both of them, but one is drying in clamps, so here's a photo of the other!
Thats the one that's drying.....they are truly a pain to put together! Tomorrow I will try to post a side by side shot of them both.

A special guest!

One of the fellow builders in the area stopped by for an evening! We shared tips, tricks, beers, and Monday night football! This post is coming a little late, but life sometimes gets in the way! So, for those of you who haven't been on the forums, let me introduce you to "Gru", otherwise known as Mike! Here is a few photos of his build. He uses a wood frame, styrene skins, Crash's Fiberglass Dome, various resin/aluminum parts, and let me say that without a doubt, it's one of the most quality builds you'll ever see!!


Well. While you always try to be as careful as you can, accidents still happening. While I was fixing the rear panel, for the 15th time, I accidentally broke it.
To fix this, I went to my bag of parts and got out my surgical repair kit.
And a short time later, the surgery was complete.
