    Hi everyone,
    Here is my air hit and miss. I usually build I.C. engines, but I have trouble keeping them all running at the same time at the shows.
    This will run all day with minimal adjustments, and it makes the right sounds and movements!
    It was designed by Chuck Fellows, and the plans were updated by Brian Rupnow.
    The plans can be downloaded from this site https://www.homemodelenginemachinis...e-as-built-by-brian-rupnow.29267/#post-307097
    Enjoy!

    Beautiful job on that engine. Thanks for mentioning my name. It's great that you got the governor added. I never got that far on my original engine.

    Thanks, Chuck!
    I appreciate your compliment.
    Someday, (after retirement-still a few years to go!) I hope to design my own engines.
    This was a fun build-I can watch it run for hours!

    That's very nice, and it does indeed sound as it should.

    Thanks, Brian, for sharing the plans, and Scott, for showing us the finished product.

    Very nice job on that engine! I have never seen a hit-and-miss engine that wasn't IC, so I never even knew this could exist.

    There are several build logs for this engine.
    Search "Rupnow air hit and miss"
    Enjoy building it-I sure did!

    Hey Scott thanks for the help. I searched and I could not see any build log. I can find the post for the plans but that’s it.

    I should have said search on Google. The first thing that came up for me was "Brian Rupnow build-air/steam hit and miss engine" I hope you can find it-there is a lot of great information available there.
