Cheers Steve :D
The fun part of this has been doing the painting, though as Mark has said, can only really be done if a static rather than moving model which it is supposed to be :)

lovely paul - I thought it would be a model showing all the internal movements -
how does that come together with the timing belt + you said it's static...
