Next project sneak peek

I'm almost done with the Mercedes, so I figured I would give you my next project: the Shiloh Sharps Model 1874. Saw this one in Quigley Down Under with Tom Selleck a long time ago and always wanted one since. You can learn more about this rifle as well as listen to the awesome music from the movie here: Shiloh Sharps Rifles

These are awesome rifles in real life, I have a friend who owns one and have had the privilege of getting to run more than a few rounds through it. He likes running rounds through my bolt action Mauser in .45-70 so we consider it an even trade off. The ranges that the rifles are capable of reaching out and hitting things at are amazing considering how old the design is. I am looking forward to watching this one come together.

Yeah, I've got a lot of stuff on the line but it's comin', so just sit tight and be patient...I'll probably start modeling it later this month. Maybe sooner depending on how much time I spend on my current projects.
