I might well be mad, but for my first project I've chosen to start with a Monitor Steam Engine using plan i found online from Julius De Waal. I wish I could find a sensible reason for choosing this project, but in truth I just thought it looks cool. At this point I should confess to a total novice. I've started on the frames, and curtainly a steep learning curve

It is true that I am building the Monitor engine to the plans of Richard Carlsetdt. Not much to show yet.

I look forward to watching this thread.

Update: Well I've added to the fame and managed to make the front and rear main bearing and attendant oil cups

I'm focusing on the bearings on the outter crank shafts at the moment. I'm not sure if my approach is the best idea but I elected to make them in pairs and separating them at the end. This is to try andensure they align properly at the end.
