Oh, come on, that's no big deal, drawing during a lesson I have drawn the first plans for my T-72 while I was at the university, during a Maths presentation (I should've listened instead, I might still be there...), I made several figure plans and diorama overlays during mechanics class this year I was reading modelling magazines during "measuring methods" class. Those drawings are present in my threads too

Hey Gibbs,
great decision! I always like the Duster!
A very good friend of mine built two years ago and blogged it on a german board. Even though itīs in german, maybe it still can be a bit of help?

Just pay attention, he built the german version, so some details may be different from the american version.
As far as I know the barrels he designed are now commercialy available from here:
