By way of introduction (everybody), Tim is an honest-to-God LOCAL modeller - from this very same (Lee) County - who I met at the LHS the other day. That made TWO (besides me) that I've met in the last 20 years - but Tim further reported that by now there is a local club, with some 5-6 members, headed by the inimitable Don Czech (who planned with me to start one almost 10 years ago, but we never could get even a third person).
Tim, your Gato "Die-O-Rama" reminds me of a shot-up Martin B-26 I was once working on, but abandoned (for various reasons) - exept infinitely more violent. On the pure modelling technique side, though, your skill level and use of multimedia all look very interesting. Does that kit come with the detailed weld-lines I saw in your closeups, or are they some aftermarket details you added?
Very interesting - keep us posted - and it's great to see you here, at ModelFleet buddy!
