    This is for anyone who was pleasantly surprised and completely amazed, by the incredible engineering skills of the guy who built the "PATELO" model engines. There is a lot more information available on YouTube about the man and his model engines. Well worth a good coat of looking at as this guy is a genius. Incredible engineering skills. Regards, Gary.

    That's taking engineering to another level, it's an artform to be enjoyed by everyone.
    It's a shame that they are only for display. Just imagine one of those vee 16's driving a beautiful model boat.
    I especially like the variable pitch props.
    Thanks for sharing with us.
    Cheers Colin.
    Fair winds and calm waters, COLIN.

    I don't know if any of you did ever heard of "Patelo". This is the nickname of Josรฉ Manuel Hermo Barreiro. He is a retired chief engineer who sailed in fishing and merchant ships, living in Galicia, NW of Spain. He should be now 83 or 84, as I didn't find his obituary. He is a mechanical genius and a superb full size and model machinist. I'd wish having a mere 10% of his machinist skills. Some could feel jealous. I can only take my [non-existent] hat off and bow.
    It is worth to spend half an hour watching a video on his mechanical works of art. It is absolutely captivating, at least for me.
    There are full size and model engines, all built from scratch. Titles are in Spanish and English. Sound is only music and engines noise -which is another kind of music-.
    One of his pieces of art was a transatlantic liner engine room, including propellers in a water tank. Wow!. There is a series of 6 youtube videos on it. This is the last one.
