That is quite literally the most beautiful model engine I have ever seen. And frankly, it rivals some real engines, imo. 2 questions, for someone without an airbrush, whats a good way to do proper heat staining? And two, how did you do your collectors?

Thanks Bill.
Hang in there buddy, hopefully very soon!
I got mine in the mail yesterday.
I am very happy that they honored your build like they did in there man.
You totally deserve for your work to be published. And that's not me just being a friend by saying that.
I REALLY mean it.
Your work is astonishing.

I took it to Omaha to a show this weekend so I added some temporary exhaust to give it a more finished look.Posted ImagePosted ImagePosted Image thanks for looking!
