Thank you so much for your wonderful models which I saw for the first time yesterday in the Dartmouth Museum. An astonishing achievement and lesson for us all in how to use our time to good effect.

Hi David What a fantastic exhibition of your scale models of steam engines. The young engineers of today should see these and they would appreciate your expertise and skill as I was.

Dear David, Your book arrived today. So much for the weekend. Are plans for any of your engines available ? These engines have been neglected by history , good to see that changing. Regards Alan

Just to say thank you for giving such a. fascinating talk yesterday at the Birmingham and Midland Institute. I thoroughly enjoyed it and will be reading the mechanical wonders book that accompanies the exhibition. I’ll also plan a visit to Dartmouth once the models are available to view ; I find it much easier to understand the engineering principles behind these inventions with such an accurate model to study. Thank you.

Really enjoyed video. We are the couple writing a tech novel about an English apprentice from Birmingham who comes to America to work on the Middlesex Canal. Thanks again

Dear David, So wonderful to meet you yesterday (13/07/2022). I am bowled over by the quality of your models! One thing I forgot to ask you about the brickwork - what type of mortar did you use between the bricks? I Look forward to hearing from you. Kind regards Derek Brain

Very inspiring. I could never hope to match the level of accuracy and authenticity of these models. I love Model Engineering but don't have the same time availability - I do watch a little TV with my wife.

Hi sir you are a very skilled hobby engineer. I'm in Maryborough Queensland Australia I'm a member of model engineers and live steams we build and run mostly 5 Inch gauge steam locomotives.Your work is second to none in scale engines well done very inspiring .
