Hey Bryan you may want to put your old EL-2b builders log over there too. There may be some new folks who have not seen it yet.
Let the Block-O-Wood Revolution continue!

Roof has been glued already early then ready for roof detail. Marty -- you can go back to doing more work on your gas turbine.

Looking excellent, as usual...

Hey, I just noticed your pic in your avatar.. Man that's a great photo. That must have been taken by one magnificent photographer. It should be on display in a museum or something.

Bryan, you are the man!  That thing is going to look great when you get done with it.  :)   I've been really wanting to see a Gas Turbine and now it looks like we finally will.  :)

Excellent job in incorporating the wood to fill in the front part of the nose.  That looks like a perfectly smooth integration.

Thanks for sharing your pics and progress with us.

Bob, thanks for sharing those pictures too.  I've seen pictures of the 1:1 version of that engine, but never thought I would see a model.  :cool:

Now see, I was not for sure you wanted to trade for the tender, I guess I better get moving.  I'm also remodeling our bath room as I work on train stuff, and make a living.

RE: UP GE 4500HP gas turbine."GTEL 4500"

Marty: Yes, I'll trade for the tender. I'm just busy on the gas turbine right now and am focusing on that. There's no hurry for you to get the tender done yet as it will be a while before i can get to it. By the way, want to remodel a couple more bathrooms? We have a couple you can do. I don't do plumbing (or electrical!).

I would like to see the prototype in action. Does anyone know of one of these monsters on film? I checked Youtube, but could find none.
