    Congrats to ALL !! :bow: :bow:

    Well deserved Firebird !! I love all the pictures, videos and commentary you provide while building your projects. You have no qualms and are very modest about showing pieces/parts/concepts that didn't quite work which are VERY instructive to us somewhat noobies !!

    Congrats Rich. Well done.

    Enjoyed the journey with you on this build. I'm sure I'll reference this thread a lot in my own journey in steam.

    Congratulations firebird!

    It was a great thread and I learned a lot on it.
    Really liked that boiler.

    Congratulations also to all the nominees. Wonderful work.

    Great engines all...an inspiration! It was a tough choice for everyone.

    Let me add my congratulations as well. I've very much enjoyed following along.

    A hearty "Well done" to the other nominees as well. This just gets harder and harder every month.

    HI

    Thank you all very much for making me the winner. ;D ;D ;D Its hard to believe my little wobbler stood a chance against two (in my opinion) superior models. My thanks also go to all those that helped me along the way :bow: :bow: :bow: Now if I can just get my head back through the workshop door ;D ;D ;D

    Cheers

    Rich

    Congratulations on a great project! :bow: :bow: Also well done to all the other nominated. This month was difficult to choose because ALL nominees had great projects so well done to them as well. Its a honour many strive to achieve, myself included, so well done again!

    Truly a handsome steam plant and an excellent example of the kind of craftsmanship that is inspired by this forum. The photos of the build were terrific as well as the play-by-play descriptions of the various steps including the sorting out phases. The end results befitting the honor of POM. Well done Steve.

    Congratulation Rich. Again there were three great engines to choose from. I think your attention to the little details gave you the edge. Great looking project!!!!!

    Congrats Rich,
    Very nicely crafted models & the thing I particularly like is the concept of a "set" i.e. boiler and engine together as a working set. Well done and keep it up.
    Cheers,
