    Where did you get the drawings on which you based your design? Did you have a technical layout of the engine?

    A most impressive piece of work.

    O.K. own up you are the original Tony Stark, if you can build a rotary engine just with cardboard,locked in your cellar. I couldn't imagine what you could do with the right materials -IRON MAN.

    wow, excellent work man!

    Seeing this makes me think that you might be interested in a group that I co-created called Boxwars.
    It seems you have already begun....

    Wow very cool, what are you using it for?

    This looks totally awesome but it could use a lot more text. I see the pictures but it would be handy if there was text explaining the pictures and giving exact measurements, telling us what to watch out for, etc.
