    I am totally blown away....wow.
    I was thinking, how can you call a kit a scratch-build and then I noticed that you hadn't used a kit....this is indeed a superb scratch build....(much better than mine! I must try harder next time!)
    You're putting the electrics in the R.F too? this was a little too advanced for me, I didn't know how to do it....You have inspire me to take some more pics but beware, mine is not coming along as fast or as nice as your is. You are doing a truly superb job! I honestly cannot wait to see the finished article.

    (oh, and thankyou so much for the kind words about my artwork! )

    hi guys , thanks a lot for those kind comments :] make me fill really good :] specially that was a lot of work on this bucket , when i found DH web i run to shop 10 min later and start immediately :] so i used whatever i could get locally not exactly recommended stuff, and as only tool i had at home was screwdriver , i had to buy everything (now I'm running out of space to keep all this so this is total scratch , i made many mistakes , lot bits had to do twice , due to lack of precision and low skill when gluing parts together i had to cover whole thing with thin layer of filler witch cost me lot of sanding is still not perfect but it will have to stay like that coz i got enough sanding :]. when i started plan was to make it quickly as pos easiest version , not even fetts colours , casual mando bucket and as i progressed i change my mind , maybe i put this and this as well etc... and now iam aiming for as close replica as skills and patience (don have a lot of this one ) let me .

    Evarcha electronics in RF are very easy to put thogether i never had anythig to do with working with electronics before this and i learn on my own mistakes , if you change your mind i will give you all the tips so you wont have to do it twice like i did :]
