Do you like to work metal?

Hi Guys and Gals!
I came across this talented person the other day and I think there's techniques to be learned from his work. The stuff he's doing is awe inspiring in my opinion. Click on his name to open it up and then click on the first picture to access the rest of the images.
Boy! If I had just 100th of his talent.
This is what s being done in Australia.
Enjoy!
BB

That Gullwing is a W194 Mercedes Gullwing racing car. It took about 5000 hrs to construct. I don't know how they figure costs but even if it costs $750,000 to build you couldn't touch a original for less than 3 million. Someone's a pretty good photographer also.
Just amazing work.

Wow, it would appear as though what he does with cars is what Ted does/did to guitars.

When I saw the thread title ("do you like to work metal?") my first responses were:

A) My name is not "Metal", and
B) No, I don't like to work - I'm lazy

THEN I read and looked at the thread, and saw how much talent and skill I lack and will never be able to acquire, so to avoid embarrassing myself by trying to do something with metal - I think I should just stick with my first response

There is still so much talent out there. I'd just like a little of it.

That is beautiful work! I know I will never possess such talent, and that's OK. I am most happy that someone of my species does possess that talent. That lifts up the entire human race.

That is all I needed....BoothBoy to give me an inferiority complex. Actually I don't have a complex, I am just inferior.

I almost hate to open up these links to metal working that the great artists do! My work is so inferior already that almost everyone I look at is doing things I'd love to be talented enough to do, and then I see someone else who's even further ahead of me!
I'm just not sure how these guys get so good at it, especially those who never did it for a living! It's crazy!
