Frank, many, many congratulations. I've watched with huge admiration as you've mastered this complex design and I'm glad to have been able to help in a small way. Thankfully, the Tank Museum has two and two halves Meteor engines on display, to photograph and measure. You've done a great job and with your chain drive, there will be plenty of space for it and the ancillaries. Thanks for taking us all on this journey. Stephen

Impressive work Frank! The engine looks a little small when installed in the tank! Amazing CAD and printing work - I would have lost patience long ago. Great results.
Best regards,
Bob

Hello Robert
Thank you for your kind feedback.

You are right,due to the RR Merlin basic design the RR Meteor is a very small engine. I believe that the first service was in the Comet.

Regards
Frank
