If you want this kit, need to call Lone Star. Muary is closing it down!

Maury built the first one with aluminum castings, and it runs well. The kit has iron castings, but is otherwise the same. It's a great looking engine but clearly not for beginners.

I am about half way through my build, castings are brilliant as are the drawings. It is not a beginners engine. Sorry to hear Maury is closing down, does anyone have any more info?
I think my castings were set number eight, I will have to check.

Just found Maury's announcement on Model Engine Maker. I would suggest buying whatever you can from him, you will not be disappointed. What a loss to the hobby this is.
