I am almost finished Mogens Kilde's Side Lever Engine which has been built double size. I am now looking at the paint job. Can anyone help with web sites where there might be pictures of similar engines and which bits were painted and which left bare metal. Also would the cylinder have been wood clad for insulation as was the case with many stationary engines.

Chris.

Hi Chris,

One observation, on 90% of real engines the flywheel is painted all over, but on models people (even me) always leave the rim as bare metal.
