I think it's art in metal, pure and simple.

If only there would be a way of getting engines like this into the after market, how sweet would that be. Your skills are of the highest level.

For sure!

Sorry, I ready thru and got my answer. Incredible work. How did you know how to do this? Do you have engineering skills? I would love to know how someone who has never milled before (great machine btw: full-size ta boot) can get these results? How did you plan the pieces?

THANKS

Jon, this is something I have wanted to do pretty much sense I was a kid, dreaming of aluminum parts for my models, I just decided to give it a try, I don't have any engineering skills, I am just using the kit parts as a reference to size and shape, and some imagination, I can see it my head what I want ti to look like, so I try and get as close to that as I can, thanks for the interest!

It's amazing. Really and truly. May I ask how long you have been building/how old you are? I'm in my mid 40s and wonder if I can ever get to this level. I want to so badly.

Bill, you are really gonna have to knock the rest of that model out of the park to make it worthy of that engine.
