WWWWWOOOOOOWWWWW!!!!! That is the coolest thing I have ever seen. I'm guessing you are some type of engineer, since you could probably build something similar in real life. Good luck on any other projects, too, as I see nothing is impossible for you.

@Borg, Pawel

Thanks for the compliments!

 

@DreyZag

Thank you sir! But I am no engineer, I am an undergraduate on computer programming course...I am unemployed so I am making profit out of scratchbuilding models Wink
