Considering this is an area well outside your usual expertise you've done a fabulous job Jean. I trust the client was suitably impressed ?

Amazing build, looks spot on to me!
Thanks a lot :P ! It was quite an experience, and I'm very lucky that it's now finished :)

Thanks, yes, my client waited to unwrap the car until her birthday a couple of days ago. Meanwhile I got her response and I guess she's happy with the car :)

A result you can be proud of, even more so because it's far out of your comfort zone.

Another high volume applause for the job, Jean! Very neat presentation, too!

Just to make this clear - your customer is a lady and it was for herself? (I mean she is a model collector?) That is a rarity in our small world!!

Finished car looks like a factory produced model which is a compliment! The finished car is a relatively basic looking model which belies all the hard work you put into it. Nice work Jean.

I wondered that too? Interesting.

Thank you :P Well, it's no comfortable car, I guess... :D

There are "signs and miracles" - as we say in Germany :D Yes, the car is for a lady, she seems to be crazy for Ralf Schumacher and collects all model cars related to his career, autographs, pictures and so on...

Thank you so much! This caused some gray hair, but "what doesn't kill us, makes us harder" :D

As I said above, it's likely that she's in love with Ralf, rather than with model cars... ;)
