    Ramon

    Congratulations on being chosen for the
    August Project of the Month. With 2 fine examples like this you deserve the honour and should be very proud.

    I remember early on in the build you wondered if anyone was watching and if there was any interest. Now you know.

    Cheers :)

    Hi guys -this is a nice surprise. I haven't been on here for a while and Jason pointed it out to me so have only just caught up.

    I feel very priviledged to be considered but to be chosen, in the face of so many attractive models and projects that surround us all on here on a monthly basis is an honour indeed.

    Thank you for all your kind comments -they are much appreciated.

    I am taking a break right now but next? Well I have recently 'discovered' a very nice looking 2.5cc engine perfect for scaling - the Taifun Orkan which has rapidly positioned itself at the top of the list :) but knowing the way things go that may change of course ;)

    Thank you all again
    Regards - Ramon

    Hi Ramon,

    I’m a little slow in responding but just wanted to say congratulations on your accomplishment.

    I really enjoyed the build and the engines are stunning; with out a doubt some of the finest model work I have seen.

    Thanks again for sharing the journey with us.

    Dave

    Well deserved winner Ramon.

    The effort that went into sculpting those "castings" was a joy to behold.

    Thanks for showing the way.

    Regards,
    Ken

    Hi Guy's
    As my 'five mins of fame' draws to a close just to say it has been a priviledge to see the Tigres sitting there when I've visited.

    A final thank you then for your kind comments and to say - for those that asked to be informed over on the build thread - the article on the trials and tribs of the anodising experiments is to be published in the next issue of 'Model Engineering Workshop' issue 194.

    Enjoy yourselves in your workshops :) :)

    Back soon

    Regards - Ramon

    Congrats Ramon! Nice to see someone bothering to do the good old (boring) hand polishing, the only way to get nice finish!
