    A Martin Evans 'Jubilee'

    This project was, many years ago, my goal in model engineering, a nice looking engine that I could ride behind. I steamed it up a number of times away from the track and rode behind it once only (a very satisfactory feeling). I then dismantled it, painted it and haven't built a fire in it...

    A pair of Minnies.

    The Minnie was my first 'Major' project. I had bought L. C. Mason's book a few years prior to starting the build (work introduced a 4 year break in model engineering). The construction took about 18 months. A few years later my daughter asked me to build one for her and the construction...

    My 'Starter Projects' from a long time ago

    Like a lot of budding model engineers, I started with a Stuart Turner kit. These were convenient. Without a well provisioned workshop, they contained most of what was needed to complete the job.

    Two more Radials.

    The first of these was the second I/C engine I made. I had bought a copy of the drawings for the 'Morton M5' and this engine is based on that design. I learned a lot from that project. The second engine 'JEMMA' was the first engine I drew from scratch. It was an attempt to design my own...

    Two 'Eric Whittle' designs.

    These two engines were built from construction series in 'Strictly I/C'.

    Two more 'Chenery' designs.

    The V twin was my first I/C engine. I was so impressed with the way it performed, I was hooked on I/C engines for some time. The Gypsy 1 is another successful design by Chenery. Sounds good. No construction photos. Before my first Digital Camera.

    A 'Gnome' Rotary engine.

    This engine is another Les Chenery design. Only one casting was required. Construction photos. https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/0B6QkfCSsH1D-S3pMXzFOdjM5SUE?usp=sharing

    A 'Benson' vertical steam engine.

    This is another engine which looks in place on a sideboard. Construction photos. https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/0B6QkfCSsH1D-LTB0eVJZbFFKWTg?usp=sharing

    Booth 'Rectilinear' steam engine.

    This engine has an interesting linear to rotary mechanism. I can't imagine that it would be all that successful in full size. Construction Photos. https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/0B6QkfCSsH1D-VTlPN0toQnF4cUE?usp=sharing

    McOnie. An unusual Oscillator.

    This engine was a little different (an oscillator with a slide valve). Construction Photos. https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/0B6QkfCSsH1D-NF93a3A3ckx0a3M?usp=sharing

    A Stothert & Pitt beam engine.

    This was just a small, attractive Beam Engine. Construction Photos. https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/0B6QkfCSsH1D-d3duRDZYM0RtSnc?usp=sharing

    A Gas Turbine (MW 54)

    Building this engine was a challenge. I have been fascinated to read articles on the design and construction of miniature gas turbines and considered the task too difficult. When the drawings for this engine became available, I took the plunge and bought the drawings and the rather...

    A second 'Garden Gauge' loco.

    I enjoyed building the little loco so on completion I looked around for another similar engine. Some years ago, a construction series in 'Engineering in Miniature' described a 7 1/4 gauge loco 'KOPPEL' designed by Ken Swan. I have looked at that series numerous times, but decided that it was...

    A 'Garden Gauge' Loco.

    A late friend of mine was interested in these small steam locos. He pointed me towards a book on the subject and I was so impressed with the book, I built the loco described therein. Construction Photos. https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/0B6QkfCSsH1D-T0s0WUNIQ0E5NEk?usp=sharing

    A Westbury 'Wyvern'

    Always liked this engine but the cost of the castings would put me off . However, I recently took the plunge and paid for a years enjoyment up-front. https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/0B6QkfCSsH1D-N0l4UnlPOUZ4WFk?usp=sharing

    A Les Chenery designed 'Aeronca'

    Having built a couple of Les's designs and were impressed with the quality of the drawings and castings, I built this on a few years ago. Construction photos. https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/0B6QkfCSsH1D-SGlxenZBWTB3UHM?usp=sharing

    A Westbury 'Seagull'

    I rather like the engines designed by E. T. Westbury. The 'chunky' castings can result in a pleasing finished engine. Construction photos. https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/0B6QkfCSsH1D-Yjc1cENnRDhlUVU?usp=sharing

    A Sidevalve Flat Twin

    I built this engine a few years ago when I was involved in RC model aircraft flying. It was not a major power house but was smooth running and very quiet. I believe it was the first engine that I took a number of construction photos, having just bought my first Digital Camera, a whole 1MP...

    A 'Mills 1.3' copy

    Some years ago, a friend brought me an old Mills 1.3 diesel which he had been given. He asked me to check it out for him. While it was in pieces I took some measurements and later, made this copy. Mills Drawings. PLEASE NOTE, these drawings are not offered as a complete set of drawings for...
