John, awesome work as usual. Is this engine from the Anikin Skywalker kit I sent you? If it is I'm glad I was able to contribute to such an incredible build. If it's not, I'm sure the model you do use it on will be just as impressive.
Regards,
Jimmy

Fabulous work, as always. 

Just incredible how much detail you can pack into a model that size. 

If I didn't know, I'd think it was a much larger scale.  👍
