The more I see the more I am convinced that you are a man truly obsessed. But what a magnificent obsession it is.

Perhaps smoke launchers are a bit thick near holes and holes not enough dug, but the general shape looks good to me. (kit parts)



Very good work.

Very good work.



The main problem is the depth of the holes. To make it deeper is a problem, as the part is hollow (inside).


Thanks, Alex!
