Default Very impressive!

I marvel at this fellow's skill. Ignore the language, just enjoy the photos, and learn.....

superb metal working ability. Just the clever way he made a differential
is extremely ingenious.

I may have posted this before but I feel it deserves a second and even third look....

I love looking at art like that.

It really boils down to money, tools and time, with the last being the most important.

Wow that is pretty amazing. Spending that much time in the garage would require me to find a new gf!

Considering my skill level and limitations, I don't feel worthy enough to even look at photos of that kind of dedication to building scale models in brass (or any kind of material). If that craftsman and I were in the medical profession, he would be a brain surgeon and I would be the guy who carried the bandage box.

All of the photos of every part are remarkable, but the lock that can be opened and closed (last 9 photos on page 14), and the operating windows on the truck door (last 7 photos on page 15) are incredible to me.

He also machined all of the drive train. The differentials, transfer case, and steering are all incredible. Then on the last page, he starts building the drive train for a half track, with working drum brakes! And hand made tracks!

That is just crazy detail and craftsmanship!!!! I see how he is doing it, but just have to look and wish I had that kind of ability.

I believe he is using tools that are well within the reach of most modelers. Incredible work with hand tools and minimal machine tools.

It doesn't leave the rest of us much to complain about with regards to not having cnc, 3d printing or fancy laser cutters...

Wow! Ill be the first to say im not that into this kind of building, ( probably not the best place to make a statement like that, LOL.) But Man, That sure is some skill this guy has. True art in every sense of the word. Very impressive.

I think all of us have at least one labor of love in us in our lifetime. The level of it is highly independent of course. I don't have anything like that level of skill. It's beautiful work and amazing to watch.

But everyone here watching and appreciating it will probably do something of their own that amazes people. Because there are a lot of people who never do anything. So to them any skill at all is pretty amazing and truthfully it is. If you have any skills you're already in the top 2%. Look around you at how many people can't do anything.
