Hi Rich, great to see that you finished the D7. I loved your build.... and it inspired me to buy a 1/3 scale. Having followed your build forensically, it would be great to have some concluding images and comments to close the loop. Nothing more frustrating than following a whole build to just have it stop. Now I need to live by those comments also!!

Great progress, watching with interest. I enjoy your pictures, they save a lot of words, explaining what you are doing. The more pictures the better.

Take Care
Rich

That's great, maybe I will learn something new. Pictures, Pictures, """""""""".

Side note: I was looking at your other posts, I noticed your first name was listed. In the past I able to edit the posts that I posted, now I can not go back and open a ole post and make changes. So the next time I update the Brotherhood members, I will add your first name, Greg.

Take Care
Rich

That is a very nice looking cowl. It should hide the engine.. Thanks for the picture.

Stay Safe
