Not even a challenge for you, is it? Will the finish will represent a moderately weathered engine? -- Russ

You make it appear so simple, looks can be deceiving. But it is definitely becoming another exquisite model.

Not just an amazing model but a piece of engineering!
Building it and getting all the correct components in their right location.
I am truly in awe.

Beautiful. Are the rods and linkages all permanent, or are they removable for painting?

When you say "real rust", is that as obvious as I think it is?  Or is there some other paint product out there I just have to have?
