    There are craftsman, and then there are artists.

    This guy is an artist.

    Yeah, half the fun of reading his build was his cartoons, Huge Penny Abe, and the his instructions. If this guy could string together a book I would buy it. Too bad he needs a publisher. That was genius.

    I look at this guys talent and I just have to laugh at what I used to call a "build". I couldn't wait to slap a model together and hand paint it and say wow. This guys abilities are way past anal and never mind his skills, I just wish I had his patience.

    Yeah I was the same Torch.

    It is an amazing build and he still hasn't finished it. Will be an awesome model.

    Did anyone notice that he has been building this pig for over a year? Good Lord. I hope it goes in a museum. I was thinking about it last night. I kept thinking about him giving it to some yahoo who enjoys it. That person dies and the inheritor gets a model that likely has crap broken off. They assess it as kinda cool, don't know what to do with the brokent "crap" (aerials, divebrakes, landing gear, etc) and relegate it to the local kid. And then firecrackers, BB gun or whatever fate is next. Shame. This guys deserves better.
