My Stuart triple casting set didn't sell at the consignment table.  It was right next to the set Ron Ginger apparently bought, so I guess he was intimidated.   >:D  :LittleDevil:


My father came home and told me that he ALMOST bought a set of castings for a Stuart Triple...  ;)

One of the vendors had a kit for $750, so I priced mine at $700.  CF would have taken 10%, so I'll sell in for the $630+shipping if he is still interested.

My pleasure, glad your truck is back up and running again! It was great fun going all the way across the expo center. My Lombard ran well that weekend, just threw the one link pin on the roller chain.

I was in the room with the construction equipment, just as you would enter through the archway.  I was hoping to get a spot in the adjoining room which had stationary models.  when I arrived Friday there was plenty of table space still available but my Otto Langen engine really needs to sit on its own table; had I put it on one of the tables that were setup for general use, when it “hit” it would have jarred the whole table, resulting in me being very unpopular. :facepalm2: :slap:

I did come home with one of Bob Herders “Myers” casting sets.  This makes a really nice model (I have a friend who built one).  I’ll probably start on it after the current build is complete.

These videos were posted by youtube use "reddrryder".  This is a 3 part series, you can see part 1 here:

You can see a brief view of my Otto Langen engine running at around 7:30 on this video

And a very quick view of the other Lauson models I’d taken for exhibit on at around 3:15 on this video
