thank you VERY MUCH for making this the most-liked thread and number 3 of the most-read threads of this forum. I am totally overwhelmed at the positive response.
Since this project is as good as complete (I'd like to post a few more pictures) I want you to know that I have switched back to two other projects you might already know of (OK, to be honest, there are three / NO, the third is NOT the battlestar! ): the Aurora and the Viper Mk. I. Stay tuned for updates in the particular threads.
