    I have purchased a partially completed model of a Hit & Miss engine designed by Ted Young who also supplied the original castings. Unfortunately the drawings and construction notes are incomplete. The drawings were originally published in Model Tech magazine around 1985. If anyone could provide a complete set of drawings it would be greatly appreciated.

    I also have a set of castings here in Australia. I have photocopies of the the build notes out of the magazine articles that include drawings. Happy to do anything to help.

    I Purchaced the kit a a naive beginner who wanted to build an engine - I remain to overwhelmed to begin. Trying to pick up some skills building little steam engines first before I tackle the ted young

    Cheers Jeff

    I recently made this engine as did a friend. This is a heavy build and good runner. The present business is 100 miles from here. Nice people. If you have questions on building it let me know. Glad to answer any questions.

    Hi once again, I have just found out that the Ted Young H-N-M engine castings I have are not genuine, they are copies. Having been in touch with Fred and Debbie Hanson in US regarding the plans it was discovered my castings were copies and no quite the same, though close. The engine I made in 2000 was also a copy and sold by Minitech in 1999. I wonder who made the castings? any clues.

    Cheers,
    Graham Shanks
