awesome. 1200 hours to make. I don't recognise it, so I wonder if it's his own design.

It would be fun to build that as a kit never mind making it from scratch!

A very talented fella :ymapplause:

He now needs to build a mini Z3 to put it in ;)

That is some skill he has there...

Truely amazing.....and inspiring music aswell, if only I could get that played as I walked in the building of a morning, I'd work harder!! :-j
Seriously though, engineers like this, either professional or amateur, are getting less and less.

Very true.. It will soon be a lost talent..
I did some work for a lady 2 years ago whos late husband used to build scale steam engine trains.. Like The ones you sit on that runs on a mini track.. But these were replicas of the full sized trains!! and he also made everything from scratch.. She told me it took him 2 years to build one and before he past he had built 5.
they were amazing and i had agood look round his workshop ( an old car garage in her back garden )

As an engineer myself I thought that was incredible. i would love to have the time / patience to do something like that.
By the way, I was so impressed, I watched it twice.
