Jack - Thanks. I have thought about building my own model which would be more simple than his model. I think his model is complicated so that you can toggle a number of switches to determine model inputs. My thought was to use a model that worked to start to understand what information should be included in a model and what it should look like. Would you recommend building my own model? To check the model based on today would I just go back in time say 5 years a ago use the financial info from that year, default rates from that year etc.. or do you have a nother method? Regarding the industry averages would you suggest using those as my inputs or checking those averages against the cash flow ouput for 10 years?

Jared
