Hi my name is Reni
I live near Northampton in the UK and although now in middle age ive been into model engines since i was a kid , my grandfather had a workshop and spending time with him gave me the bug , but what with work and stuff ive only been able to really have time to get some engines done in the last 12 yrs or so , i started with a 12cc glow plug two stroke which ran so that was encouraging but was very messy to run with castor oil and smoke going everywhere , i then discovered stirling engines which are much cleaner and indoor friendly to run so made several of those and a flame licker which all work well , I,m currently without a project but fancy making a four stroke ic engine of some sort probably a simpler Webster type to start with and see how that goes.
regards Reni

Hello Reni. Welcome to the forum. The Webster is a great little engine to start with. Many members have built one as their first project and you will find plenty of info about them on the forum.
