You did a great job. How long did it take?
MikeCakeMaker answered:
From memory I calculated about 12 - 16 hours in total, you get a bit carried away when you see it coming together made the buckles and rivets first, letting these dry hard
Elisa Strauss asked:
AMAZING! GReat job!!!!
MikeCakeMaker answered:
Elisa, all credit is down to you - great class - extremely good class - may be a dog next but may be a bit ambitious for an amateur like myself, you the real person or the artist secretary - if the real person I am SO pleased with comment
