I definitely want to build the working verison. I'm going to be moving in 2 days so can't download anything more. Once I get a computer back online I'll be here.

Well after 1 year, 11 months and 18 days what started out as an idea has now finally been realized.

From the orginal sizes that I designed to it has only grown in length by 67mm.
The final size of the model is 800mm long, 430mm high and 410mm wide, and weighs 3KG.

there is 5467 parts to the engine, the model turn over but this build the model is not going to turn over.

I am having issues getting all the photos online, I will post as it is uploaded, here is the first few.








More to follow
