Default Dang, that carriage is big!

Awesome work Zulu. The paint looks great with the black metal work. The Alamo is going to be very pleased!

Absolutely beautiful, large, and astounding.


That is some top notch work there Micheal. I am going to have to see that someday if I can ever swing the trip.



I also think they are going to be very,very pleased with this..I cannot imagine anyone who would not be.



Is anyone from the Alamo following the build here? Or is it going to be a surprise unveiling? I am hoping it will be a surprise for some reason. Then you can get us a video of the unveling maybe.

Beautiful, and BIG. You kept saying it was huge but I needed pictures to really understand.

Michael, Outstanding work! I didn't realize the size of it until I seen the pics of you standing next to it. Dom

Don't forget it was not only me.
My lovely assistant had my back every time a 150 lb. lift had to be made.
Not to mention the wonderful paint job!


Thanks for the comments!

I am looking at this and wondering if it Kewpie worthy, not quite sure, maybe. There is just something missing.

I have considered hopping a plane and flying to San Antonio. I am still weight restricted, so all I could do help would be to supervise. I am so tempted.

You should go Douglas. I would if I had the financial means to do it. I would love to get away a few days.
