    I agree that it would definitely be so cool but it aint gonna happen maybe if i win the lottery, but i guess i'm buying a Masterworks instead

I enjoy seeing how the kit started and how everything has become so tight and well laid out. I don’t play big kits, but this one looks like such a blast to play!
    Sometimes i'm looking back to the old pics and then to the kit now and i feel so happy ! I know it aint a high end kit but i build this kit with so much passion & love .... And i'm damn proud of what i achieved

    The rocket toms turned out nice Andy! Nice job. They blend right in. Did you mask the badges? Also, for the chrome hardware, what did you do to it before you sprayed it black?
    Thanks Matt !! Yes i masked the badges before paint. I took off all the chrome hardware and took it with me to work. We have a sandblastin cabin over there and i sandblasted all the chrome off. After that i spray painted all the hardware with a basic coat and afther that 2 black coats
    It took a little while to finish everything but i'm very happy with the end result !

      Yes, that sounds like a good prep job... I bet the paint will stick well for a long time. It all looks very good.
