A little bit more about the creation and its creator.

Wonderfully impressive but for me, quite worrying. It seems to me that you would have to be obsessed by the job. Not for me Bodge!

Theres a whole raft of working miniature models out there on the web, including home built jet engines, and a complete working model of a rolls royce merlin.
The engineering skills of men in their sheds has no bounds. But the dusenberg is a beauty if Icouldn't have a real one the replica would do.

I once asked the wife of the owner of probably the best-restored showman's engine, Lord of the Isles, what she thought about it. She said "I knit a lot".

We get to a lot of country shows Stanley, and at many there will be a line up of early static engines, there proud owners standing over them waiting to answer questions.
Behind each exhibit will be a parked vehicle. In most of these Vehicles will be the other half,a surprising number knitting. Maybe knitting and engineering are symbiotic.
