    Thanks for the kind words, you just have to mess around and keep welding until you think it's done... I think the texturing on the "stems" is the neatest part.. just turn the amp control down to its lowest setting, and paint on the texture with the mig welder, once done, sandblast it to get it clean in the hard to get to places, then buff it to a shine with a wire wheel.
    Snake was done using "punchouts" from hand rail channel.
    Regards, Jim

    Hi Jim Saw some of your work on Hobart the other night. It is outstanding. Wish I had the imagination. Thanks for sharing.

    You need to get a few more posts under your belt before you're allowed to give us the bird

    Thanks for your warm welcome, Jar heads are ok, they do get all the crabs off the beach before the Army comes in to do the nasty stuff...
    it's really hard to mess up an MRE, but those plastic bags are good for keeping sox dry..
    Any way, Nice to see this active forum..
