 Brilliant, just brilliant, the talent and skills of model makers out there are
mind blowing.

That's a coincidence Red181, of all things that was something that I picked up on and that surprised me also, just made me appreciate even more the skill of this chap. A real old school cratsman of the first order. Would love to know how just how long it took him to manufacture let alone assemble the parts. I am in awe of his skills.

I can barely cut a bolt to length without knackering the thread; so I am always wholly amazed by chaps who can achieve such things. Hats off I say.

Hello,
Fantastic !!, BUT, the camshaft drive is wrong.
Camshafts run at half engine speed.
