Sorry to drag this thread up from the depths, but I am sitting here with my jaw dropped, in complete amazement.

I signed up for the forum specifically for to compliment comp1839. I've never seen this kind of detail or craftsmanship on a scale model before. Such amazing work; the amount of hours dedicated to this must be unimaginable. I think I have a new "favorite build thread" now, surpassing the legendary full size Terrible Herbst triple Trophy Trucks:

For those, like me, who have never seen comp1839's work before, there is an almost endless showcase of it here:

It includes more gems like this:

bigtone, thank you for the kind words. the camaro has been put on hold for awhile but, i promise it will get finished one day. as you can guess these cars take quite a bit of time to build and the real car was sold since i started this build. this kinda took all the steam outa my sails so, it will get finished. possibly in a different configuration. right now i'm doing a fictitious top dragster build with that sonny hemi you posted. hope you enjoy!

The fact that the Sonny Hemi isn't a full size deal blows me away. Almost nothing in that picture gives it away. I found the Top Dragster build thread and figured it would be ok to post the Sonny pic here. Hope that was ok.

You may have created a monster. I used to build models as a kid, and full size moly chassis drag cars as a young adult. Now I'm seeing how those two loves can combine in a small, clean corner of my shop. I wonder how much a Sherline mill / lathe combo is anyways? Hmmm...

If I'm ever in your neck of the woods, I'll be the guy with the beer / booze / donuts / whatever-it-takes begging for a shop tour. I might ask to be your apprentice in exchange for keeping the shop clean and mowing the lawn. I'd just need a small corner for a mat to sleep on.
