<p>Where did you get the drawings on which you based your design? Did you have a technical layout of the engine?</p><p>A most impressive piece of work. </p>
How much does it weigh and how long did it take<br>
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.

What in the ... ? <br> Amazing.
cool, thanks...
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.
Thanks....next one will have lot-a-text and measurement.......promise
Just saw several of these a few days ago and i have to say it's insanely accurate! well done.
Thank you, means alot to me.
Badass. Period. 4 Stars due to lack of description in steps.<br>Still one hell of a project!
Haha, you must have went for the professional heavy-duty glue gun after the first one melted. This would be great with some metallic paint but it is still cool with the raw cardboard look. I bet you the final product is heavy. Nice.
I really like this one. Shame there aren't cad files or something so we could cut one out on the laser cutter.
are you mad ???<br>Huge job ! And I think that pictures are self explanary
.&nbsp; Fantastic project and great pictures but no explanatory text. :(&nbsp; Flesh it out and this could be feature-worthy.<br>
