I only get one of these kinds of kits once a year, at Christmas. I have been a FSM fan for years but just couldn't find the right one that suit me. I wanted a kit that would challenge and improve my modeling skills. I searched and searched then found these gems. I cannot say enough good things about this kit, it's awesome instruction manual, or it's creator. You have a new customer for life. Thank you for the skills you share with us as we work thru the build. I am so pleased with the way my version turned out, I love just sitting and staring at it. Thanks again. I would like to share a few oics of my build. I strayed in a couple of areas such as the real cedar shingles on the welding shop and tower. Enjoy.
