    But, I know A lot of us are members of both, & this was the first place I came to....

    Here is a little "mash up" of a project I've been playing with.

    It's based on Rudy Kohoupt's stirling tractor as published in "The shop wisdom of Rudy Kohoupt-Volume 3 & Chuck Fellows air operated John Deere twin cylinder engine (Plans for that engine posted here: http://www.modelenginemaker.com/index.php/topic,8942.0.html)

    I thought that Chucks John Deere might be a good fit for Rudy's tractor because the scale is similar & I have always wanted to model an Advance-Rumely. It turned out to be a nice fit with just having to adapt a suitable running gear to it. I still have some details to add to it, but wanted to share what I have this far to see if there might be an interest in it.

    Hi John,
    I like that a lot .Having build the Stirling version it would make a good sister build to it
    Out of interest have you seen Les Propers builds I think he used a flame gulper
    Kindest regards
