Just had a great time skimming through this build (I been away) and it is so wonderful with all the extra added bits like the leather and wood and the extra details. The color scheme is perfecto as well. I like everything about it.

Hi all nearly at the end now, there are so many more things I could add to this but I think I will just finish it as it is, I must say I much preferred the first build of it and I think it's more interesting to look at when I build the next one it will be in more of a state than the first one.
