Eugene Buffard said he had a complete set of 974 Special plates, so I thought I would try a reconstruction project.

Parts as received: serial # 2566320

Add a face and hands. Should be an inter-urban Monty, I'll have to look for one.

Add a case to test carry.

Seems to work fine.

Tell me what you think.

Steven, Very nice, looks like it was a fun project.

Are you going to put it in another case? Would you care to sell the case pictured?

Joe

P.S. It looks nice (but that's my eye) in the case pictured.

Joe,
I think I'll keep the case even if I put it in another one. For now I'll just carry it in this one.
Thanks for the offer anyway.

Steve
