My second posting. I registered and introduced myself in September. I was part way into a build of a single cylinder balance beam engine and was stuck for a dimension which was kindly provided by JasonB. As it is now finished and runs well on compressed air I thought I would post a couple of pictures. Apologies if they are in the wrong orientation.

That looks good Geoff and nice to see one of these painted as many are left as bare metal. I've also righted your images.

Looks great and nicely made. I dream of actually finishing a model engine one day.

Excellent work Geoff; you must be very proud. I really like the colour, it suits it well.

Agreed !



Incidentally [and not wishing to hi-jack Geoff’s thread], I clicked on the image for a larger view of the little beauty, and was surprised to see that the big image doesn’t get ‘righted’ … Mmm

Thank you all for the kind words. I always like to paint models for authenticity, after all the full size versions wouldn't be left as bare metal!

What a nice looking engine. Now you just have to make a boiler to go with it.
