I am a new member who has only recently acquired a lathe Unimat II and Mill (last 18 months or so). I am mainly a 7mm scale railway modeller but I have done a couple of small upgrades to the Unimat and I am considering getting a Stuart Models stationary engine to improve my machining skills which were last used in the late 1970's while at school.

Welcome. Somewhere on this site is at least one topic covering the building of a Stuart engine in detail. You might consider just a little oscillator to start and or one of the 'dad's engines'.
As usual I will recommend you find you local model engineering club as they can help with advice and often cheap tools and materials. Roughly where are you?

Doesn't everyone start with a Stuart S50 engine - from castings of course? Lots of youtube videos of course, some better than others. i would recommend 'Learning Turning' as a very good tutorial.
