Great photos Des and they couldn't find a better home as we modellers are always in need of engine and rigging photos. Oh, how I wish I'd seen these Viper photos before I painted mine. I'd have much preferred the metallic effect on the cylinder heads as opposed to the black paint I have on them now. Next time for sure!

Cheers,

Chris
