Thanks for posting..I really need to stop looking at all these things, because I could not possibly finish what I have now, and then see more things I need...……..

Looking great, I will be following your build. Do the plans call for the ignition and bevel gear arraingment to be like the original, like in the video you posted? I have seen some of these models built with a slight variation.

I shall be watching this one with interest. It looks like it might go well into a scale car. Also that company might be of use to me with my latest project as they offer bespoke casting services.

Wow you’ve done a great job, beautiful looking engine.
About 6 months ago I made a Benz Patent Wagon, a static version out of scrap wood and copper wire, no plan just pictures.
Would love to build a working version like yours.
Well done sir .

I am looking for a finish for my next build, Is your Karl Benz powder coated or painted?

Great job, looks great. Did you make the bevel gears? When are you going to post a video of it running?
