Hello,

 I made the drawings for about five months. The second drawings for casting of gray cast iron I gave for the production of wooden models. Wooden models I put into another casting company. All preparation to have the first test castings was almost one year. So, I gave myself the perfect gift for Christmas.

Great looking castings and great start to the machining.

It must be so satisfying to be working at last on the castings you have designed yourself and had poured.

Looking forward to seeing the way you build this model to your usual high standard.
