After more cunning plans than Blackadder this engine is nearly finished
I dont know who made the castings as they have been through several owners
The beam had to be machined from the solid and the geometry redrawn due to errors by a previous builder
All in all its ending up more like the original engines and the fire box is as per the kero type
Also thanks to Bobs Models for his very useful write up
A little of its history canbe seen here Another Part Build.....
It now runs with one 5/16 dia wick meths fired and still needs the speed control to keep her from flying away
I have fitted a regenarator into the displacor but simply dont know if its been of any advantage
Video once the base is finished
Kind regards and thanks for looking
