Hi all,

Here's my Elbow engine a made a while ago as well. I only have assembled photo's of this engine, so here it goes.






Kind regards

Very nice! I've always been fascinated by the elbow engine. When I began this model engine thing, I realized that it was beyond my capabilities. I might be able to pull it off now if it weren't for the 10 other projects ahead of it. 
Best,
Stan

My first motor was the elbow  engine from "Popular Mechanics", I never did get it going, it's sitting on a shelf somewhere, and like Stan, if I were to build it today I'm sure it would be no trouble.
