    Fantastic. Thanks for that.

    All very well executed models. I'd have reservations putting open flame flammenfressers on my model boat but at least you wouldn't need running lights.

    2300 hours for at least one of 'em : https://www.roadandtrack.com/car-cul...built-by-hand/ I've seen other examples of his work before, it is staggeringly good.

    The 16 cylinder radial Sterling from JohnnyQ90 is actually a Bangood kit. He modified the front end on it with the turbine prop and cowling and got it to run at 20k if I remember right. Watch the video if you get the chance...he does some kool stuff

    I had the pleasure of going to the big vintage Car/Model show in the East Bay in 2014 with my son. Got to see up close some amazing engines like these and meet some amazing people who made them. One in particular that lit my candle was a Radial with a Big O'prop that he ran it out side the exhibit for us. I have an MP4 of it running but was shooting hand held with my baby Olympus...not great video but here a picture of the engine with the cowling off. Quite a Day!

    truly amazing work by all of the small engine builders. Some of those I have seen in other videos, but nice to see the variety by this video. That jet engine at the end was something else, can you imagine the first time spooling it up to 95,000 RPM???
    Thanks for finding and sharing.
