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:)



Great job David!!!


Keep after it, Wes

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:

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!!!
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!
