Thanks Holger, yeah, I thought about posing it straight up doing the maneuver, but decided for a more neutral pose in the end.

Günther, the base is a 6"x8" gloss black trophy plaque that I bought from Trophykits.com. I used 3/16" armature wire connected to a 10/12GA ring terminal that I screwed into a hole drilled into the bottom of the model. The information card is made by me in Adobe Illustrator to 2.5"x3.5", which is the size of a standard Baseball Card. I printed that out and put it in a nice Baseball card holder, and attached it to the base.

Thanks Bart!!! I appreciate the kind words. I am happy how the engines turned out too. I love doing heat stressed metal like that, really gives me a chance to get creative and use a bit of artistic license!

Beautiful Michael, How is the kit.

Thanks Clifford! The kit is really easy to put together, goes together fast. Not a huge number of parts. The fit is pretty good in most places, but the intakes do have some fit issues and require a bit of putty and sanding, but nothing too terrible.
