scale model of engines

I was at the Phoenix airport last week and saw some most amazing scale working models of real engines and model engines on display. Almost missed my flight while spending too much time at the display, which was sponsored by http://www.engine-museum.com/ Some of those were entirely hand made from ingots. Some cut-away models even have the tiniest part slit open showing the innarts and I always thought assembling my foamie was too much work.

It sounds right too

This Ferrari was featured on a TV programme for big boys toys, When it starts up it sounds right and you should hear it rev, Fantastic.

Just imagine what a 1/3 scale Mustang, Spitfire or Hurricane would be like with a working 1/3rd scale Merlin!
