Excellent work Tim,

If I didn't know, I would not believe that was such a small scale.

The rigging really works

Congrats on commissioning.

The rigging is looking awesome. Great idea using the wire from that coil, doesn't put any stress on those masts.
Another fine commissioning.

Well Done Tim. That rigging really makes it pop. You've set the bar extremely high with this one! Looking forward to seeing what unusual subject you bring to us next.
