Is the model maker a member of this forum? Posted on this thread perhaps?

No I just happened to get the site sent to me today and put it up for the Good of the Order.

Maybe it will get us off the IBT for 5 minuets. Not that we should lost our concentration on that subject.

Wow!

HowieE-

Is that your work? It's outstanding craftsmanship!

Can you tell us more about it -- or send a detailed link?

It really brings you back.

John

That's wonderful work. However if it was real, I wonder how it would work getting up an inclined driveway...?

No this is not my work. I have trouble understanding that level of craftmanship let alone doing it. This will give you more detail.

Wow!! This guy must have waaaay toooo much time on his hands. Sure does detailed quality work though. Kind of makes my Scout Truck model pale in comparison. I'll try not to be too discouraged.
