Look at the size of these fully working engines. The steamengine is the size of his thumbnail.

I went to see that model a couple of weeks ago.

His P51 and F4U models are so detailed, you can even see he had an electrical harness for the instruments!

Think I'm joking?

I need to shrink down the pics so you can see them.
 
Good grief! I can't even begin to imagine how he managed those.
 
Heres the first set of pictures from this museum.

If you want to see really big ones of the pic, to see more detail, ask me.

The first two are of a tiny gas fueled engine, the master machinist at this museum was making.

The pictures of the models in the museum are of "lessened" quality as I had to take the picture of them while they were in the display cases, and they had flourescent lighting. Sorry.
