Look really great Paul.

Marks tips have really brought that fire to life.

I feel that I could be owing you another K.

Could the Old guard now be giving us young pretenders a good run for our models :angry-banghead: :lol:

I'm sure that you could be naming this master piece "The Phoenix" as this build has certainly risen from the ashes :clap: ;)
