    Thanks for all the kind words and getting the "Rat Seal of ApprovaL' :D

    It looks better in person and is not as brightly metallic as in the pic.
    It was fun to build and ALOT easier than working with metal, as in headtubes, rear fork stays, grease and grime.

    Wrenching bikes is way different than shaping some pine and plastic.

    Here's how it really looks w/o the flash. I really like the chain. I got the paint from a Hobby store (14ml vial of Humbrol (british) metallic bronze. I think the military modellors use it.
