Very nice.

Ask him if he wants another Centare after he finishes that one. I've got one that could use a spruce-up.

^^ Charlie, I'm sorry, just flying for the Navy at present and sleeping when I can. I'll send you a provate note when I get a free moment. The work is lovely, and I think you'll have another to do as soon as you like.

Stunning is putting it mildly
Heart stopping and shear elegance.
