Good Job!, your effort echoes my first engine build, I did not have a lathe or milling machine either and yours looks better than mine did! Mine was a "fabricobbled" steam engine, it did run but poorly, the boiler was never made operational, ran the steam engine on compressed air. The entire base and frame was made of wood, the flywheel was an old iron caster wheel and the cylinder was a car brake wheel cylinder. Like your engine, it took a long time to complete. It was lost to a fire a few years back! I was about 14 or 15 at the time...
