It really does have potential Stephen, and historical interest. Good drawing of a difficult subject. Nice work.

Great study Stephen certainly worth the effort and expertly drawn.

A very well observed drawing Stephen, different subject matter but really well done.

Easily good enough to put a frame around and hang on the wall - anyone interested in old machinery (and many are), in the tin-mining industry, in Cornish history, would find this fascinating.

Great subject, well drawn.

Who needs "pretty"?? Great interesting work! Enough pretty around already!!

A great piece of machinery Stephen.

Certainly inspiring enough to draw and paint it. So well drawn, so much detail.
