That's IS big!

Of course I've been aware that it's definitely not a mantlepiece model. But having assembled it my jaw hit the floor; it brings it home that it really is BIG! Gawd knows where I'm going to put the second engine.

you may want to consider flushing up the rivit heads before you roll the other engine onto your laminate floor

Not too worried about that. The floor is el cheapo B&Q plastic wood. It already has quite a few gouges and lumps knocked out of it as a consequence of heavy engineering and assorted builders traipsing through the hall.
