Re: Future Builds - Kinda Not Random

Right, I haven't posted in a while but a lot has happened, and not all good unfortunately. Let's start with the good news. The Special Q body is on the painting stick in the workshop and will get a couple of sealer coats and then satin nitro for a smooth finish. Put the frets in yesterday as well bu...

Re: Warwick Corvette Ramp

Legends, that Wenge would be awesome! Certainly keep with the warwick theme Absolutely the Warwick theme. I’ll whip something up tomorrow in the shop.

Re: FIFA World Cup 2018

Just because a team is not tested yet does not mean that they are non-achievers Yes, waiting until the elimination stage is a valid approach ... I’m just saying who I think has a good shot... IF they make it through group ... I mean, right now, the best team to this point is actually RUSSIA! 6 pts ...

My pick for the tournament ... Belgium ... Where did my post go? Oh well, let's try again. Belgium? Really? After winning against that soccer powerhouse Panama? Hmmm ... ;) .
