While not up to current Airfix standards, it's still a decent kit but is a rather challenging one to build well. There are absolutely no redeeming features in this box of horrors, and it should be avoided at all costs. There isn't a single part that is accurately shaped and the intakes, fuselage and nose are so deformed as to be laughable.

This little engine (the flywheels measure 8" (20.3 cm) in diameter) started out as a set of blue prints and a box of raw, un-machined castings direct from the foundry.


The kit is now complete and running, requiring more than 1400 machine and construction hours to complete the display. Scale-wise it works at to a wing span of about 36 ft and length of 84 ft or so - compared to 37.14 ft and 89 ft respectively for the real thing.

Import charges previously quoted are subject to change if you increase you maximum bid amount. After 259 actual machining hours and many long nights, the basic engine itself was ready to be assembled and tested.
Bernie Montague from DunfermlinePostd at 10:10pm on Monday, April 2nd, 2012There is now a 1-32 scale card kit, produced by IPMS Austria. If you reside in an EU member state besides UK, import VAT on this purchase is not recoverable.
The engine is constructed and operates exactly as the full size engine, including the burner, the only noticable difference being the legs. It utilizes both sides of the piston in seperate combustion chambers, thus acting as a two cylinder engine while only having one physical piston and cylinder. The cart was then patterned after the hardware of the period and is completely homemade with the exception of the actual wheels, requiring an addition 80 hours to complete.
The model represents the use of the ornate cast iron legs that were usually used on the full size engine.


There are no cams used with this design, but 2 eccentrics are used, one to operate the exhaust valves and the other to operate some of the ignition system.
The wheels are authentic antiques coming off of a Fairbanks-Morse floor scale dating back about 100 years.
My full size original happens to have the simpler cast steel legs, which are better for my transporting the engine to our shows, due to their greater strength. The model operates exactly the same as the only known existing full size engine, though it can be noted that several things shown on the original patent papers no longer exist on the original engine, and thus were left out of the model. The machinist has the option to extract what information he can from the patent papers and fabricate the missing items.
Once built, a way of displaying the engine had to be designed in order to provide the fuel (propane) and a source of cooling water in the proper "setting". The result was a full water supply system in miniature showing how the original engine might have been used.
