I really hate when I catch onto prints way after the fact. This looks pretty neat, and as a science dork, I like it even more. Excellent grab. If ya ever want to give it up for cost, just let me know :wink:

just recently reacquired this beauty. I updated the gallery today. It appears they will not be seen in the proper order? I worked hard taking all shots, uploading and naming them in order so the story could be followed by all on here, but it appears it jumps from 1 to 10-16, and then back to 2-9... :( I guess I should have labeled them differently, like panel a, panel b; rather than 1,2,3 since it thinks 10 follows 1.
Anyhow, I asked it be fixed in the corrections thread, but I wanted to bump it up here in case it doesn't get read before the pics gets approved.

and fyi, this poster rules with the metallic silver and looks great since its huge, comparable to his Long Quiet Life in size and only beat out by the couple bonus prints that are crazy wide. Glad to have this back 8)

I want this one bad. I fear it will always remain out of my (financial) reach.
