Man, all of these are too awesome for words. I especially love the looks of the engine in the last picture. What are the hoses and belts made from? If you cut them out of wood I'm going to die of incredulity and awe. AMAZING WORK. EVERY BIT OF IT!

the fan belts and hoses are made from Huon pine I soak in water overnight or as Terry (Buggyman) gave me the tip of steam over a hot
pot of water on the stove, then i put the wood in a mould of the shape i want to make.

Well that's just incredible. I'm so glad to have you here. You are a master craftsman. :eek:

Great job Mel. I'm so glad you decided to post your wonderful models on here. Now, lets see some more!!!
Me too! I don't know where the heck you found this guy but thank you for encouraging him to post here. The bar of quality model making at this forum has creeped so high that us mere mortals need a ladder just to see it anymore! I'd be better off taking up knitting at this point.

Would you consider posting some pictures of the tools you use, or even a listing of those tools.

Very nice, indeed.....

As Tinny Tim would say, I love "them, every one." Or, Wow! I love the curves and detail, specially on the engine.

Thanks
