Fantastic piece of work.
Some very nice machining too.

About ten years ago there was an article on a guy who worked for Ford Motor Company as a pattern maker. In his spare time he built miniature copies of the cast patterns for a 302 V-8. Cast them, machined them and assembled a running engine. Damn thing looked exactly like a scaled down 302.
