Not bad, and the machining is magnificent...but I wonder if it is run on petrol or just air pressure?

That was cool!! I met a guy that made a small scale helicopter but he didn't make the engine for it. Impressive stuff!

Very neat/cool indeed !!!

My wife's great uncle was a wood worker......You should see the scaled locomotives he built as a hobby !!!
The detail is absolutely amazing to say the least.

it is great work! it will only run on air or steam pressure - the cams are geared 1:1 instead of the 1:2 on a four cycle engine. It must have been designed from the start to be an air motor.

Shocked Wow-it said he spent 1220 hours on this project!I want to purchase the "shopsmith" unit "smithy" and do some automotive/gunsmith work on it-but I doubt that I would ever get to that level of intricate work! Shocked
