A truly beautiful example of fine craftsmanship. Outstanding! Awesome! I just learned how to hand make a 4 cube turners cube which I felt made me somewhat competent on the lathe. Then I see something like this and wonder if I might need to take up gardening or basket weaving. Naw.

And here I was patting myself on the back recently for finally getting the hang of single point threading...o_O

Absolutely beautiful craftsmanship, sir!:cool:

Beautiful work, Sig. I would love to see a video of it running, but I suspect that this one is meant to be for static display only, correct?

Yeah, but I bet you can't do this. (As I play "Old MacDonald Had a Farm" with armpit farts.) :D

Seriously, that is an awesome display of craftsmanship. Thanks for sharing it with us.

Wow! Now I can never post picks of my work as I could never creat something as beautiful as that in metal. I have build some nice things in wood but metal is a whole mother world. My shop is also not suitable for viewing either. Thank you for giving me something to aspire to!

Thanks for kind words guys, this pictorial wasn't meant to be show off but more like instructional or tutorial for one of the European models building club 5 years ago.
What I was tying to demonstrate here is different tooling, different setups possibilities and capacity of small machining tools. Something I always wanted that someone show me when I started with this hobby long time ago.
This display model actually runs on compressed air or it could actually be hooked to another model steam boiler to run it.

That's pretty incredible.

I assume you use something like Photoshop to white out the backgrounds? It's a very nice touch to an already amazing build
