  1. Wonderful finish, Gruffy.

  2. Thanks Dave, first post so still feeling out how it works...

  3. Looks to be a "Goldilocks" build. Everything is just right. With some some strong painting, construction and weathering. That is a build worth writing home about and being very proud of Gruffy.

    Looking forward to seeing more of your builds.

    Two thumbs up.

  5. She looks great - very nice paint and finishing work. Well done! It's always a bit jarring to me to see the poor bird with clipped wings, though it does add for a bit of variety!
