All of your models are excellent. Your traction engines are the only lego ones worth looking at.

Thanks for the review! Your Engines look complicated, I don't have the slightest idea how to do what you've done. They look really cool, keep up the good work.

Hi Andrea, Thanks for the review, I've looked at your website and must congratulate you on your realistic models! You have a very complicated drive-train on the Burrel, quite impressive! Did the real Burrel actually have a differential? --- You have to try harder at your photography, it will make viewing of your models more pleasurable for everyone, and lead to higher ratings, too! I tried your videos but unfortunately I only heard the sounds, no actual footage :-( It is a shame that you must use non-lego flywheels and compressors to power the engine, but this should not be held against you because it is not due to any lacking in your engineering skill, it is rather a fault on Lego's part, I think. --- Your Ruston Pneumatic traction engine needs better pictures, it isn't possible to make out anything other than the vague outline! --- Overall, a brilliant MOC let down by some poor photography. Happy building, email me if I can help with the photography!
