Congratulations on a very creative project. It may be Steam Punk, but I like it.

Thank You for posting,

Whoa, and what an imagination you have!

How long did it take to build? Where do you live?

Thank you all
Imagine a situation that you live in steam era and you need a tractor and only what you
have is small marine steam engine - so you would come to this tractor design.

I am from Slovakia /EU/ and to make tractor including engine took me 12 month.
Here in my country is snow and cold now so I will make video during spring.

Absolutely incredible!
A very Avant Garde design, beautifully executed! I would love to see it running. Does the Gantry work? The oil lights?
All I can say is "W O W"

I enjoyed the video! Thanks for posting. Somehow the video took me back to the Chitty Chitty Bang Bang Movie with Dick Van Dyke - just "too Cool".

What a great model. You have quite the imagination. I am curious about how the steam chests work. The eccentrics seem to drive a rotating shaft. What is going on inside the steam chest?
