I think I qualify. 8-)

What I consider my best soldering job so far:

The header pins on the bottom two rows and on the right hand side.
I'm no SMT guru, but I'm decent.

A couple of my other projects:

Ten-Ten 1253 shortwave receiver:

Southern Cross 1 Z80 SBC:

Replica-1 Apple I Clone: (this was the most fun)

My very first (horrible) soldering job with a "Learn to Solder" kit:

The AVR Butterfly header pins job was only a month and a half after the
"Learn to Solder" kit - lots of practice and better equipment made a BIG
difference (I picked up a Weller WTCPT off eBay).

I've got a P112 Z80-based SBC kit sitting here waiting for me to find the
time to build it.  I *really* want to build one of the Altair 8800
recreations but don't have the time OR the money for it.
