    jump on the bandwagon, if you've got a mould, are you thinking of selling these as kits? or even as completed pieces?

    Thanks everyone for the warm welcome and compliments! It's great to be among the best here at the RPF! I've already sold a few on eBay and I have an interest thread over at the TCF. I can't post in the Junkyard here till early September.

    Thanks again!

    I can't decide if I'm more jealous of that spiffy helmet or because you live next to the water. Great job from start to end.

    Very sweetly done. I'm longing to get back into the shop for a project like that.

    Excellent work. Especially the paint.
