Thanks for posting your photos Jeff, enjoyed seeing your fine examples of the Stuart models.  You have also done the "extras" on your steam hammer, I think that it makes an interesting and slightly different project.   Dave

I had an interesting chat with Clif Roemmich that may well change my approach to future models.  The first point he made is that on his large IC engine he used hydraulic tube as the cylinder liner.  This tube is honed on the inside, so taper in longer bores is not an issue.  If I had used this on the Joy engine I would have had a lot less trouble with bore taper.  I found a few sources online via Google search for 'Honed hydraulic Tube', and there's a vendor on Amazon that looks possible if the sizes fit.

The other point he made is that he now uses only powder coating and got rid of all hia point.  Even the "brickwork" on his bases is powercoat in brick color and pinstripe tape in the grout lines.  He said that the only issue was finding powder that melts at a temp lower than the soft solder he uses for piping.

Great pictures and sad I missed it again this year; maybe next. I hear what you are saying Kirk, we should always be looking for the “nearest thing” to build our models from, yet, I think we shouldn’t look at the easiest way; or we would all be 3d printing engines. I think part of my enjoyment comes from that nice bore with no taper produced by me, and not purchased. Hell, PMR and several others have “mechanics kits” that are machined and ready for assembly: ain’t my cuppa tea. Just got a flyer today from some old boys that can  sell you a complete 1957 Chevy convertible ; you just gotta put it together. Now granted, all parts are new and alls you gotta do is screw everything together and paint it: . I guess my point is: you can pretty much screw together anything today, if you know where to “buy” the parts. Me; I like making them

Sorry for being slow loading my NAMES photos, but this week has been busy. I liked the way Tim posted his photos and will post them in batches.








I must admit the photos looked much better before I reduced them to 20% from 4000X3000 to 800X600. If someone has a suggestion for how to clear them up send it my way. I am using Fast Stone resizer.

Nice shots Art - really like that little travel trailer in the first one!

For the resizing, just looked up that Fast Stone tool, and saw on the screen capture that down in the lower right is an option that defaults to 'linear'. See if they have an option for 'bicubic' resize, that will do a better averaging job.

Chris,
Thanks for the help. I did set it to bicubic, there are a number of settings. Don't know what they all do? It does make a small improvement, at least the print is more visible. The guy that had the camper also had all the control line boats. Here are some more photos.
