    This is really cool. You start of with something really scrappy looking and you make it into something really beautiful. Although this does not fall into my taste, I can really see the hard work you put into it and I really enjoy watching the case come together. Keep it up!

    i know you are going to model it after the locomotive, but it is also somewhat of a shame to me to finish all of that brass in black... in any case fabulous work. love all of the details.

    aha, I thought you might have lathed it but didn't see pics of it....

    That's what a tripod is for... you can take pics while working on the lathe, or while you're woking in the kitchen ;) :hehe:
