Lou Chenot
Louis Chenot spent several years building a owrking 1/6 scale model of a 1932 Duesenberg. For his efforts he was named the "Metalworking Craftsman of the Decade" award winner for 2011. His model has over 6,000 handcrafted parts and a working engine. He's been working on it for 5 years -- he anticipates needing 2 more years to completely finish it.

There are more pictures after the jump. You can read more details about the project and see many more photos, links to some YouTube videos of the Duesenberg and  information about some of his other projects: a V-12 powered boat, a 1/6 scale 1895 American LaFrance Fire Engine, and a 1/6 scale Bentley Rotary Aircraft Engine at the Craftsmanship Museum website feature about Louis.
