Great work on that oldie, Lefty!  Looks like you got those parts to fit together nicely.

Cool! Nice looking B-17 and an awesome garage. What's that car in pieces?

Nice job!  How did you do the staggered waist windows?  Just painted them?

No paint.  I cut out and filled in.  Wasn't all that difficult to do.  Rather enjoyed it.
