Hi All The castings for the McOnie engine have arrived and I have made a tentative start. The castings were some of the best I have seen, very clean with a generous machining allowance. I would like to point out that this engine is not for the feint hearted, I have been a model engineer for a long time and this one is one of the hardest I have tackled. Having said that it's going to be a beautiful engine when finished. I shall endeavour to keep you all informed. Regards Mike.
