Impressive work as always Chuck !

Although i kinda liked the "chicken scratch" writing style... I thought it looked perfectly in place of your cartoon style of presentation :)

Ye Gods! The boy's waxing all lyrical! :icon_surprised:

But he got it right! ;)

I miss the old script, it felt somehow more personal than the type script, but I guess some viewers may have had readability issues. ::)

I'm with the Aged Marsupial Herbivore on the old script. But, with a build like this, who would complain  :)

Your detail work is sheer poetry to me, too, chuk!

Not only is your "assistant" easy on the eyes, but she's got an eye for talent too!

Thanks, everybody- much appreciated!  I hope to finish the new IP's and install 'em this weekend. 

Arkon- I used to display my builds at the now-lamented Military Shop in Long Beach, CA- but now I keep 'em safe in a glass case in my studio.  Mine all mine!    ;)
