Although I have some more small parts to make, valves and railings, the engine is complete and running.
Thanks to all who followed the build.

Just beautiful George! That is some beautiful machining & shows the level of talent you have. When you cranked up the air while running it, not even the slightest run-out on the flywheel...

 Fantastic work George,

Having made one of these at the design size I am super impressed with this version.  A wonderful model.
