This is amazing. I wonder how long it took to build.
I love the last photo with the builder in it, it gives you true scale comparison.

Any idea what scale it was built in? Does the engine run or is it static?
Truely impressive...that's alot of build time there!
I thought it was a modified LGB engine but I saw no pick up shoes...
