I've been looking forward to the sideart application, now it's on with the T-molding and marquee it looks staggering! This is an incredible achievement and shows what can be done with skills and patience and DEDICATION!
I'm sure I'll be building a replica one day, just for the fun of it if nothing else!  Grin

Scr33n is a genius! This is a COOOOOOOOOOOL project!
