    Hallo Model Engine Friends,
    I just started to built the MP 3,2 cc Model Glow Engine instead of finishing my first little steammachine. I can n't find back the original plan/drawing from that little steammachine.
    It was once published in a German Model Machinery magazine somewere between 2001 and 2006 .The tittle from that magazine still is today "Machinen im Modellbau".
    Somewere i must have the planset,but till today i can n't fit it back so as a good alternetive i started with the MP 3,2 cc model glow engine which seems to me a good and sturdy model engine to make this time.
    I hope of course that you like the photos i made on my dark,but tiny hobbyroom under the ceiling were i can work refurbishing at old factory model engines and making a complete model engine my own.

    Many greetings from modelmotor-Gerard-The Netherlands-Europe.

    Hallo Model Engine Friends,
    I have done some work at my MP 3,2 cc model glow engine.
    Plenty of time because of my age and the bad weather situation at this moment which gives me some extra time to make some parts for this engine.

    Many greetings and i hope you like what you see.modelmotor-Gerard-The Netherlands-Europe.

    Hallo Model Engine Friends,
    Apologize for putting some photos of the same machine handling to much on this website,but most of the photos are still showing some other details of this building process.
    Next time i will take a bit more care when putting a collage of photos on one of my threads.

    Many greetings from modelmotor-Gerard-The Netherlands-Europe.

    Hallo Model Engine Friends,
    Just as a try out i made the main part of the Crankcase from Mild Steel.I did some flycutter work on it as finish,but maybe later on i always can decide to make it still more
    polished or so.
    I hope that you like this idea which will be only usefull when the engine does need to power a model plane of course.
    The Mild Steel part from the Crankcase will make the engine extra heavy of course.
    Many greetings from modelmotor-Gerard-The Netherlands-Europe.

    Hallo Model EngineFriends,
    I still had some extra photos made after the boring and the work with the Flycutter to show you how this main part from the Crankcase now looks.
    I hope you will enjoy my photos again.

    Dear Model Engine Friends
    I have done some work at the Mild Steel Main part of the Crankcase.I also made a 9,5 mm hole in the Front part of the Crankcase and i started the built from the Crankshaft from EN8 steel i should like to have EN24T or maybe EN 1A.
    I think this kind of steel will do the job perfectly.
    Many greetings from modelmotor-Gerard-The Netherlands-Europe.
