Very fine design and execution of a wonderful model Gerd.
I enjoy models of more obscure enginesl like this.
Great video also.

Very well done indeed !

I love the sound it makes.

Kind regards, Arnold
Building an engine takes Patience, Planning, Preparation and Machining.
Procrastination is nearly the same, but it precludes machining.
Thus, an engine will only be built once the procrastination stops and the machining begins!

Wow Gerd! This is great!  Excellent video too!
Do you have plans for this, or know where someone could get them?  This is a very fascinating engine!  So many moving parts to watch.
And the model is just beautiful!
Thanks for sharing,
Kim

Hi all,

thanks for your nice comments on my Drop Valve Engine.

@Dave: I don't have build photos. The parts as such are not really difficult.

@Kim: There is only one plan - that from 1805. Pls. see my initial posting, first picture.

Greetings

Gerd
