    Hi Murray

    Just received my Indy plans and they are beautiful, very well presented cant wait. But that is my 2nd half of the year project and will take some $. But wanted the plans now so can progressively collect things. Tricia . Central Queensland.

    Awesome Murray, have been going through it and am amazed at the detail. Superbly done and put together!! Darryl. India

    It works for me Murray… was just trying to get a ball park figure on build costs. The plans are excellent. It may be a bit of time before I am able to get started constructing but I am going to go through it over the next couple of weeks and try and hash out issues. Ethan USA
