Scale Model Engineering - A 1/6 Scale Duesemberg SJ

A pretty remarcable piece of engineering... It is difficult to believe that this is just a scale model of a Duesenberg SJ. And this is why Louis Chenot got awarded the Metalworking Craftsman of the Decade by the North American Model Engineering Society and the rest of us just glue pieces of plastic together.


Amazing attention to detail. Six years and an estimated 15,000 hours of labor.


And to top it all off, the engine is functional.
