Absolutely stunning work!!! How is the training going for the mouse that will be driving this? :) The DMV will be wanting you to license this if they see it.........

I have just found this thread, absolutely incredible work.

I'll admit to no having read the whole thing yet, just wanted to as what scale this is in.

Incredible craftsmanship and workmanship!!

You usually have to look at 1:16th and larger scales to find this level of detail.

Thanks for sharing,

Thanks to everyone who commented on the last update :lol: :D

It really is appreciated!!!

Brad ,the pulleys were in my spares box, left over white metal castings from some steam powered machinary I was building. Found in the detail parts section (Railroad) at Caboose Hobbies. The belts are just Tamiya yellow tape.

Not alot of progress but....

This is just freaking amazing. The level of detail that you are putting into this is just mind boggling. When this is done, it belongs in a museum somewhere. Kudos to your hard work on this, and no doubt patience. B)
