Great stuff Dave.
Re the BV, closed suits me but I’ll go with the flow. Looking forward to seeing the other projects as you get to them.

Hi Youngjae
The speed of your build is impressive and it is great to see the first of these Chieftains coming alive before our eyes. My question for you - how are you finding it? Is it going together well or have you had any issues?
