Howdy!
« on: October 18, 2018, 09:20:28 PM »
Hi to all here at Model Engine Maker. I am currently building a 1 1/2" scale steam roller to the Bill Harris design. Chassis is partly complete and needs detailing, engine is complete and runs well, boiler has continuing issues I am working on slowly. I also have plans (after I finish work in a few years) to design a model of, and build, an Erie B-2 steam shovel, and a Goold Shapley and Muir 22 HP i.c. engine, a side shaft twin. Also busy repairing / modifying O scale electric trains and maintenance equipment for a local model railway that does public shows. I do mechanical design for products and tooling in industry.

Great to see all the excellent models and projects here, I've been looking in as a guest for some time. Keep making chips!

They came through fine Jeff. Your issue may have been overly large file sizes. Shoot for something like 800 x 600 as a perfect size for the forum while keeping file sizes on the smaller size. Nice looking project by the way too!!! :ThumbsUp:
