Could've been better, but had to salvage several mistakes. The pics show up the flaws a lot more than in person though.
Great work, DS :thumbsup: Like the simplicity of the flames. By the way, just gotta love those new digital cameras. Dosen't matter how careful I am, the car always looks worse 3 times it's real size. :p

That's true. At least I got the problem with my batteries draining too quickly fixed. But I still need practice with the camera. I must've taken more than 20 pictures and these were probably the best four with a little cropping. Of course, the cropping seemed to zoom in on things even more.

:thumbsup: :thumbsup: Robert, that Ghia is one hot ride. I hope it shows up on the streets of Diecast City.
Hey DW...haven't seen you around much lately. I got most of the problems ironed out in the next chapter of Diecast City. The hardest part of writing chapters in quick succession like I did for a while...is figuring out how to tie up all the loose ends and conclude the thing within the next two chapters. I took a little break and kept coming back to it, but I always got stuck in the same place, with no ideas that I thought would move it along the way I wanted it to. I figure the next to the last chapter should bring the hero to his wits and and give the bad guys the upper hand. This, along with all the characters from the board in this chapter wasn't easy to accomplish. I'm going to be leaving it sit today and working on it tomorrow. I made some headway on it over the last couple of days that I liked a bit better. With any luck I'll have a finished chapter by next week at some point. At least that's the plan right now.

I kind of banned myself for awhile :) . Plus I just needed a little break. That and the fact that I haven't bought any new JL's for the last 5(maybe 7 ) months.

The "Committee" heartily approves ..... if it exists, that is, which it doesn't, so forget what I just said. ;)
What's that...couldn't hear that "C" word for the static that suddenly filled the airwaves. Funny how that happens whenever I think someone is going to mention the commit....CRACKLE POP SNARK!!!

Can you hear me?

Is anyone out there?

Anyone at all...
