Thanks Soren, not going as fast as the previous M551 but I hope to get decals on and begin weathering this week.

Thanks man, is that your Cobra? It's awesome!

Here is my pride and joy I bought new off the lot in 2002, supercharged 5.4 V8, slow in comparison to the newer Cobras'

Just make sure to leave your traction control on and stay away from any Cars and Coffee events and you'll be ok..LOL

The Lightning has Zero stability systems other than my butthole puckering up till i let off the gas.

Now all the UK guys are going to hate us driving our big supercharged gas guzzling V-8's where gas is only $2.50-$3.00 a gallon for premium.

Very entertaining.Your vids are an amusing alternative to the Nexflix, and Prime, box sets that down my fibre line from time to time. :D
I have the Tamiya 1/16 Jagdpanther- static version- lurking in the (crowded) 'to do' wings. It will need gearboxes, and maybe an IBU2, to get underway. :think:
Since you're about to head down Jadgpanther way, I'll be sure to follow with interest. :thumbup:

Thank you, I am glad you enjoy watching.

It may be a bit before I start on the Jagdpanther need to take a bit of a break from the constant builds over the last few months, but I'll be sure to post the build videos here.

Don't get my anxiety up, I just took in a new foster dog and have two more full option tanks waiting for me to finish the Jagdpanther....
