    That's a lot of work for "a start" but then I saw the picture of the entire project. You go your hands full. Great start!

    That's a great CAD rendering. What software is it?

    Should really be called sweet eight as Julius doubled it up.

    Also be aware that the boiler as drawn will not meet most boiler codes so get it checked before buying and cutting metal.

    For anyone who wants some guidance on making the engine or would like to do it at the original size which would fit a Unimat or Sherline lathe then the original magazines are available on Model Engineer's website, they start in issue 6.

    Also from memory, Rex did not use DP or Module for his gears so they may also need looking at if the drawings are simply doubled
    The book is also still available from T publishing

    Beautiful work!
    Is this not an L.C.Mason design originally known as “Minnie” ?
