Don does some beautiful work with very creative ideas on how to use different materials. I know I am going to have to take a second look at balsa now after watching this video. I hope you will have Don back on doing his " rust " technique on the car. The peeling paint along with the rust was very realistic. Oh...and Trevor, your shirt really made the buildings pop...nice contrast !!!!!

Another great episode guys.  I love all the signage, open manuals, magazines and stuff.  I especially like all the bullet holes in the car.  Nicely done.




Love Trevor, great at demonstrating new ideas and always asks the right questions of guests. I've learned a lot from him. But Trevor, who dresses you?. Your a Video TV Star and you have the ugliest shirt collection I've ever seen. Addirionally, most times the collars look so bad I wonder if your sleeping in them. Your in the big leagues now Trevor, time to step up!!
