    The piping you have done on this model in simply fantastic. the realism it ads just becomes more evident every time I look at it. I expect you'll be firing them up soon!!

    I made a Jet engine for a member, the basic paper model of a Rolls Royce Trent jet engine. He took that base mode. (it's not available, I gave it to him) and the piping he did,d and the frame he made, took that basic model to another level. I honestly consider my part around 30$, considering all the greebling he did, and you have taken this model not way over the top, but far closer to a foundation for "Realism". Parts no added for fill, but parts added that seem to make absolute sense, and should be there. Congrats on that.

    I have and will continue to help anyone with design help on a project, but I will not make a complete model for anyone. I just don't have the time. :)

    I like the engine exhaust. May I use that technique when I rebuild my Viper?

    I am not certain if I can make it better than yours, but I can make one better than I did before.

    The cockpit looks like all really can move the seat belt harness aside, and climb in, the plenum chambers look like they work too. I am starting to run out of words for this! :)

    Gorgeous! I guess I'll put that one on the bottom of my to-do list for awhile, and just look at this one!
