Roland, nice to see you back at it.
You are incredibly creative and the boiler looks real good so far.

Once again thank you. You guys keep me moving.

Bob. I saw the Wiseman engine, but by that time I had figured out what I needed to scratch one and wanted to try.

Arthur, My scrap box is everywhere. I'm always looking for something that might be useful. Learned it from my father who never threw anything out. Everytime I look at something around the house the wife gets nervous.

Roland,

PM me your mailing address, I have a box of details to mail you that I don't think I have the skills to turn to anything, but in your hands they would probably turn to gold.

This sounds like a nice challenge project for Roland.
We all send him one piece each from our scrap boxes and see what he makes from it.

I also have one of these, haven't built it yet but it looks like a good kit.

Finished the steam engine this afternoon. Still needs painting and the governor belt added. Made up from a paint brush handle, bits of brass tubing and wire,
pieces of plastic, small heads from pins, an HO drum lid, and scrap parts from the box.



I will paint it tonight if I get some time.

You got the touch Roland. I'll just call you Mr. Fixit. Well done and truly from scratch.

Roland, the steam engine looks like it has never been used.

That is a great piece of modeling, glad to see you back at it.

Thank you all. It was a fun build. I never did get it painted last night, maybe tonight.

Very nice use of lots of miscellaneous parts, Roland. It's always a pleasure to see what you're doing.
