Thanks Bryan!!

Thank you Mike, Stuck together with rubber cement and white glue for now. The engine will be cast in resin so it needs to break down in sub assemblies for now.

This is spectacular work, Randy! Sometimes I have problems when scratchbuilding a little "T-Fitting" to brake lines, or something like that and then you're scratchbuilding everything. B) Absolutely fantastic work.
