great work. I like the pic of you and the little one … He’s into it..

Wish my guy would have liked it. He didn’t, now that he owns his own home he regrets it.
You can never get that time back.

How about an M1 Abrams,
When I was stationed at Ft Knox, there were occasions where we had them transported out to the ranges, saving the road from being torn up by the tracks.

Another nice build. Next project needs to be a lower workbench for the assistant.
