Insane Engineering

I'm interested in engineering, from the amazing feats of some of our famous 19th Century engineers, to the latest stuff in transport and space exploration.

On my Insane Engineering page, I keep track of some of the more recent things I've come across.


Occasional articles related to Web Design and Web Development can be found here.

Firstly, thanks to everyone in the 16mm association, and on the 16mm e-group for their invaluable help and advice, and to Richard F. (you know who you are) for getting me into this hobby in the first place.

Thanks to Peter Velichkov (www.creonfx.com) for some of the Javascript on this site.

A special thanks for Hege, Ståle, and Jan Egil Refsnes (www.w3schools.com)
