You are beyond talented!

BTW, my idea of an all aluminum engine assembly is painting it aluminum.

I think you should do two copies of the engine, and display one alongside the car when it's finished. Good stuff!

I have to agree with my friend Brian on this build. I love seeing the builds of you modelers with such great talent. Trouble is when I go back to my projects I think to myself " Why bother ? "

I used to think this too, then one night I was watching Norm Abram's 'New Yankee Workshop' and I realized that this man IS incredibly talented, but it occurred to me, "look at the tools this guy has at his disposal?!" I'm not saying that tools make the builder, but they certainly help. That's not to take away anything from the talented builders here at the forum who take the time to share their genius with us. Just remember, it's meant to be fun, 'progress, not perfection.
