    Fantastic work! I'm speechless!

    I would love to see a video of all the patterns you made in order to make the castings.

    Did you cast at home or involve a casting place to use your patterns?

    Candidly, I'm surprised it only took you the four years. You must have been putting in a fair number of hours each day to make that happen! The work involved with each pattern making was a project, let alone getting the engine and transmission to work!

    Nice work is an understatement!

    That is the finest scale model I have ever seen. You have something there that is priceless. Very impressive. Museum quality.
