Thanks so much to @zathros and @Revell-Fan for all the kind words, and to all the folks who've made such nice comments in all my builds. It's really nice to be part of something positive and fun in our "dark and gritty" world. This model has been a real challenge and I'm determined to finish her up right. Helping with my brother's new project (a 1965 Chevy Biscayne) has taken me away from the build desk, but I see the Hawk sitting there every day and I've got vacation time coming so she's going to see some love. My early New Year's resolution is to finish up some languishing builds (ST Phase II Oribital Office ) before starting the new ridiculously detailed projects in the pipeline. However, since @Revell-Fan said such nice things, I might have bring one of his incredible projects to the front. It feels like I've waited 500 years to start it! More to come, soon. Thanks again, everyone. You guys ROCK!
