That's just fantastic Marv!! One can only imagine how many hours of making patterns and machine work is needed to make such a perfect model!

Thumbs up Re: Little KC Lightning Engine

Looking And Sounding Great.

Just a quick suggestion on your YouTube Videos though. . . You Might want to hit the edit button and add some Titles and descriptions to them.

I never would have found your video of the THREE Big 4 Tractors (and a Reeves 40) if I hadn't clicked on your channel to see what else you had uploaded.

You have some Cool Stuff on there that Thousands of People are missing out on for lack of a Title.

I Sub'd your channel while I was there, bumping you up to 10 Subscribers so I can go back and check out more of your videos later on.
