The guy I sold my shells and hardware to, recently sent me pictures of his completed kit. He did an amazing job!!
There was a small pang of regret when I saw them all decked out in their new black sparkle glory but the truth is, I would never have played them. Plus he did an outstanding job, and I wasn't fairing anywhere near as well as that! He should get a ton of use out of them now, and loads of pride to boot!
