Well, Dave I kind of messed up the other day and deleted the folder for my project. But have the final picture I had posted for the last update. Will use that as a final. I try so hard to be better than deleting something I have not backed up, and haven't for a long time. Dave, you are very kind!! Thank you!!

I have just finished a delicious Tai meal that my girlfriend brought over. And a glass or 3 of wine and some smokes are in order now!! Have a nice evening!!

I wanted to mention I really liked the metal texture that you did. Looks good

sweet, Im mucking around with a Triumph T100 tonight, taking a break from the Spitfire tut, made a lot of progress. Just got the tank close, had the tyres done but deleted them, thought of a different approach (dont you hate that!!) Look foward to your posts mate.

Cheers bullet

Hi Bullet
I think you are at the same stage as me, when to use the 3 button and when not to. I think this will only come with experance, I need to do more hard edge modelling to use the soft edge option. I am pushing myself with each model I make ( next one number6). The only trouble I have is time. .............dave
