    Rest in piece Vector and may your works last for ever. I saw some of his work and he was very good. It was the same as when TFmaster died

    yet another kitbasher joins the party in the sky.

    my condolences to his family and friends, i never really knew him but his works speaks of a tallented individual.

    May he rest in peace.

    never knew him, but i did see his work. he was one of the best kitbashers i have seen on the boards. May he rest in peace, and may his family remember the good things about him.

    Every artist dips his brush in his own soul, and paints a piece of himself / herself into their own work

    Oh so thats who did that Alt Magnus!? I never knew the fella and didnt really know about much of his work but i had seen that Magnus floating around the place.

    Man he did all those other great repaints too...such a damn shame. He has inspired me to do my own Magnus now though, so he continues to inspire even after he has moved on.

    That is awesome.

    Now the video, that is heartfelt I'm trying to fight tears, but since I never knew him, but his customs inspire me to try some customs of my own. So for Vector I hope you kick some demonic butt up there and thanks for the memories and inspiration. Thank you and God speed.
