There is a nice write up by Dave Carpenter in this weeks edition of MEW. It describes the progress on Mike Tull's two (yes two) 1:3 scale Mercedes Benz W165 Grand Prix engines which were exhibited at the 2015 Guildford Show.  http://modelengineeringwebsite.com/Mercedes_W165.html

Mike Tull has also started a build log (blog??) for these two engines on Facebook. https://www.facebook.com/pages/Mercedes-Benz-M165-Grand-Prix-engine-The-construction-of-a-13-scale-model/387812084736890?fref=ts

Both the engines and web page are still ' works in progress' and the webpage only be maintained if there are enough followers. So why not become a follower.

Mike mentioned about his facebook build log when I saw him at Guildford but I remain committed never to joining facebook  :paranoia:.

He was going to join us here on MEM and post the build log here  8).

I have joined you on MEM as Vixen

If there is enough interest I can publish my Mercedes W165 build log on MEM instead of Facebook

Welcome Mike, we are all about build logs so yes, please post it. Also when you have a chance, you may want to post and intro in the introduce yourself section for those that may not be following this thread.

Mike,

I too would like to see the build log here. I think that a web site like this lends itself well to the format.
