    Phil!

    I'm so glad you're here!! I lost my internet connection for over a week and was really worried about you. It's wonderful you are completing the Porter. Don't give up, my friend. Your contributions to the hobby and presence on the forum are invaluable.

    Did I forget to mention, you are looking at my prototype, and NOT my build?

    Yes...I still have to build it...you kidding? You think this represents TWE well?

    Gonna release this with prototype build pics...anyone else ever done this???

    After finalizing the parts, I am gonna spiff-up the paint job and accessories...
    but I am gonna take a year doing so...

    Don't worry, the prototype will be quite pretty too...see?

    Okay...sorry...this is prototype #2.
    The first one was white with black lines...usual prototype.
    But no, I did not finish that one. I realized that I wanted to demo the colors as well as the fit, so I completely finished the colors for my test build.

    This is the test build...

    I removed the prototype download. Don't worry, the actual model is coming soon...She's looking really good! It is EXTREMELY DIFFICULT for me to withhold pics from you...but I want her to SHOCK you...can't do that if you know what to expect...
    Patience fans...

    "She's looking really good..." <splutters> That's the understatement of the week, sir. Do I detect the sound of her boiler being lit? I do....yessir, I believe I do. Looking mighty fine indeed.
