Thanks Kev,
  No,Ingrid is a one-off I did a while back as my first female figure upgrade. It was a personal challenge for me. Lots of subtle dremel work and scalpel stuff to get her to look more like a "her". That is the main problem I see with a lot of 1/35 scale female figs. Too manly in the face.

  It is enjoyable to work on a vehicle after so long. Way behind on this skill compared to some here though.

This new format for the site is such an improvement in every way. It's nice to see such an upswing in over-all participation in the forum.  For one thing,we now get to see who looks at the posts. I am thoroughly gobsmacked at how many views I got for this project so far. Words fail me.  I seriously thought everyone could care less about my postings here before. Which is not meant to sound egotistical. I seriously thought my work just sucked and I needed to work very hard to try and improve. Now I will take all these views as a positive motivating factor and work harder in the future.   Thanks ,all,for looking in here. Deeply humbled.
   Then again,everybody could just be stopping by to view the train-wreck ! Sort of like slowing down at an auto accident on the other side of the highway. Heheheh
Sorry for the coffee induced rantings this morning,tschuess!

I stuck the driver in for a test fit. He will snuggle down more when finished. Not my best Erbsenmuster.  I may re-paint.

J,

There is nothing that sucks about your builds they are very good indeed. But it is sometimes annoying that people look and say nothing.
