Mark, here's a buddy's page:
He's a smart and practical dude. Cranks these out in his backyard home shop
in Regina Saskatchewan.
This one's about the size of a modern alternator, and makes a scale jet go
The Hornet, top left pic goes like a bat. Seen that one go, and the sound...
it's real man.
They are extensively modded Kurt Schreckling designs, with all metal parts,
some unobtainium, etc.
