A couple of odd engines I thought people might be interested in seeing. Sorry the lighting in the first hall played havoc with my flash:

Then  some of the competition models:

(http://i214.photobucket.com/albums/cc12/jothoms/Shows/Midlands%202013/IMG_4783.jpg)

I found a 1/6th scale Galloway with the UK suppliers who to date have not got it to run and they are now trying with conventional sparkplug ignition  :shrug:

The Stirling Society had some new engines:

(http://i214.photobucket.com/albums/cc12/jothoms/Shows/Midlands%202013/IMG_4802.jpg)

Which they had arranged for cheap drawings/kits including the difficult to obtain parts.

These boat engines were rather smaller than they first look:

Nearly forgot the traders were also showing a couple of engines that you could buy the casting kits for:

And Forest Classics were doing a couple of engines, and promising more in the future  :cartwheel:

Eric: I had not appreciated how small your bottle engine was until I saw the one on their stand. I made a point of discussing the chilling problem with the traders and they are promising to pass on Jason's advice as to how to solve the potential chilling problem on the castings so that other UK customers don't have the problems you had  ;)

Oh you could have slipped that Woodpecker into your handbag for me. You will have to talk tham into attending Guildford again.

Quite like the Senior from Engineers Emporium as well.

Thanks Jo, that is the little fellar in the same packaging I started with. I still say the first casting that came in the kit was head and shoulders above the replacement that I bought after the boot stomping episode :lolb:. Just because and for, when I have time I'm gonna try the same spot on the "kit casting". Thanks for letting them know. If they can't fix it, maybe they could give us " intermediate" builders a heads up when they print the notes.

I'm not sure if the finished engines or the raw castings are more lovely. While the engines are beautiful, the castings have the promise of future joys.

Quiet a collection there Jo, and I do like your photos. Are you planning on making another VDH? I see a set of casting. Hemingway didn't attend this year because the are marketing by email and offering 10 to 15 % of through October. You could get some riser plates.

Bill: I posted the pictures of the haul here: http://www.modelenginemaker.com/index.php/topic,2557.msg44282.html#msg44282

The two large heavy bits are the flywheel and winding drum for the steam plough. The smaller three are a set of GHT Dividing head castings. Yes I know I have a GHT dividing head and it is very good. But mine was a home made welded up steel one without the tailstock and for 15 I now have the possibility of completing the set. (I would need to make a matching tailstock and the main head to ensure they are the same height  ;) )

Thanks for the pictures I didn't get. Pity I didn't get to catch up with you but I didn't think going up to every good looking lass and asking "are you Jo" was going to work. Especially as I had the missus in tow. That said she was enthusing about the exhibits and encouraging me to spend money so I can't complain.

regards

Pete
