Been quite a while since I did any modeling but I finally am getting back into it. Thought I would complete an old kit I had from Ivers Engineering of the '53 REO Gold Comet in white metal. The bunks on the truck and the stinger trailer are scratch built out of styrene and brass.

Chester, it's wonderful in 2 ways.
The first, it's really great to see you posting!
And secondly,I have missed these well crafted gems that you share with us.

Chester,

It's great to have you back, and I'm sure I speak for your friends all over the world when I say that you and your family have my condolences for all that you have been through. You're a stronger man than I.

This is an elegant little build! Somehow I missed that Ivers gem....

Welcome home!

Glad to have you back!
We were all horrified to learn what you have gone through. Our condolences to all your family.
You have many friends here who wish only the best for you and we hope that your modelling will take your mind off the pain you have gone through.

Great to see you back on the forum, and I echo the thoughts and feelings expressed above.

The REO is a nice truck, there were made here in my home area, many may or may not know that REO is for Ransom E. Olds of Oldsmobile of Lansing, MI fame. The REO motor company lasted until at least the 70s making trucks of all sorts. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/REO_Motor_Car_Company

It's really good to see you back at the workbench and at posting your model, Chester. I hope life will be better to you now.
And the model is wonderful, as always with your trucks.
