    Been working on the Pocher Mercedes engine, solving its assembly with only scale hardware and adding a working compressor subassembly linkage...This linkage will be connected to the accelerator Pocher Mercedes engine "on the raw" pedal further on...

    The pics sequence shows all the parts sanded, rectified, drilled & tapped....all this is dissasembled later and goes to the painting room...

    Besides the compressor linkage, please notice the compressor relief valves, the raw gasoline retainer cup and the scale hardware that keeps everything in an orderly fashion...

    P.S. Dan, are you watching?

    Everything looks great! You need to borrow one of my big pennies for scale reference.

    Keep up the great work!

    (The loud thud you just heard was HFC falling off his hobby chair even after tightening the saftey harness.) OOOOOWWWWW!!!!!!

    I knew it, I knew it. I knew Mario was going to come out with something amazing and he did. Great work, Mario. I'm going to follow this one right to the end. Give us all you got.

    I'll definitely wait patiently but I'm also chomping at the bit.

    Great job, Mario .I'm looking forward to more things to come, and take benefit for my K82's restoration. Spent the last weeks sunk in thinking, whether to shorten the body or leave it the way it is.

    This is stunning work Mario. Well done.
