    Wow, that's cool! Any build threads? How long would a project like that take?

    Very, very cool.

    Do you maintain a personal collection of these, or do you move them along and go on to the next one?

    As of now i only have the one,I have a couple more in the works a 4020 diesel and a unstyled A with hand start.I haven't had much time to work on mine as i have built 4 of these for other people.That supports my hobby and buys me new toys for the shop.

    That looks great. What do you use for power, are they electrical?
