Terrific construction. Congratulations on the prize.

The more I do, the less I accomplish.

Very impressive! Between the treads, access steps and the lifting arm, I think I would have lost 2 fingers and gone blind!! How long did it take you to build it?

All my models are produced in limited edition series of 6 items in series. If I was to make only one, it would take about two months, 6 items takes me about 3 months because preparation of templates and tooling is most time-consuming phase in the process.

Very slick. How much does one of those go for?
