I've less machining experience so hopefully nothing too complex for me.

I think something that is not too complex to build yet is visually very appealing so we cud perhaps show the results at a few events and try to attract more ppl from Toronto to model engineering and this site.
well, perhaps you have something in mind....? i don't want to necessarily drive this bus, i'm quite willing to to my part on any project.

are you thinking stock build or casting sets?

Im pretty open, but we have few takers so far. Stock build might attract more interest. But we have a castings supplier in Ontario... and I've wanted to try IC engine build.

Toss out ideas, see what sticks?

Tiny IC
Howell V2
Grasshopper steam engine
Perkins
Morse Fairbanks

or even a boiler build... with all the accoutrements

We'd be very interested in that. I had so wanted to go to cabin fever this weekend...

I need to find ME club in Toronto or surrounding area.
