Finally after 14 months working on it, the engine is now complete.

The full build log can be found at : http://www.homemodelenginemachinist.com/f23/kiwi-mk2-engine-15903/

When I started this project I noticed that there wasn't a lot of information on the internet about this engine, so it was decided to make the build log as detailed as possible with all my ups and downs included.

I hope you like my crude first attempt at building my first engine and excuse the fact that I am quite proud of it.

Vince - my apologies but I have only just become aware of your super engine build.

Some lovely machining there and a nicely finished engine you have every right to feel justifiably proud of. What's next - can I tempt you with a diesel ;) - on second thoughts fuel could be a problem where you are

Whatever, congrats on such a super build

A sparky is something I would like to tackle but ooh - when ????

Regards - Ramon

Thanks Gail and Ramon.

Diesel......who knows. Maybe sometime in the future. At the moment it's either going to be a Hoglet or a Corliss. Leaning mostly on the Corliss if I find the required material.
