    Well we are into July. There have been some great engines on here lately. One that has got allot of response is a LTD Stirling made by Twinsquirrel. This is a very nice engine. There is a build log and video HERE for you to look at. The pictures tell the story better than I can:eek:)

    Very nice, I don't know how to word it but I like how the simplicity contrast with the contures. Very artistic.

    Congrat's David.... Now do you think it was your videoing skills or just the superb quality of your engine?? ;D

    I'm thinking just the stills would have been enough! .... Glad you made the vid' though ;)


    I think 'Retro-futuristic styleee' Was almost agreed upon by the creator and I :big:


    Nice to see the thread back up and running too ;D (who's changing the picture?)


    Once again David, congrat's (you know that raising the bar thing I was on about...!! ;D )

    Wow! There sure have been a lot of engines completed in the past few days. It's really hard to keep up with them.

    That's a very elegant LTD David. Nice craftsmanship. Congratulations.

    Well, how stupid do I feel!!![​IMG] I kind of got the wrong end of the stick there didn't I. I've never really been very good at receiving praise.

    Thanks ever-so-much Wes and everyone else.

    What a beauty!

    It's always fun when somebody does it "just a little differently".

    Cheers!

    Have to agree, an excellent engine. As I think I've said before, anyone who gets one of these LTDs to run deserves a medal in my book! Mine barely runs with ice on one end and fire on the other, never mind from a cup of hot water!

    Funky design too!
