Just wrapped up this project and though you guys might want to see how it turned out. I must admit it exceeded my own expectations. Some of the plastic parts were slightly tinted for an aged look. It only took two days! :thumb:

That's gorgeous Eric! Funny, too, 'cause I had heard a rumor that you were hanging out with Kim at the Arlington show a bit! Now I know why! :rofl: :applause:

Yeah Frank, Kim gave me the lo-down on you. NOT THAT I need it! LOL! You clearly have a knack for scoring the coolest Les Pauls!
