The S50 will be my next engine, so this build thread was especially interesting.  Great job!  I was contemplating replacing the cast-in nuts in the base and after seeing the positive effect on your S50 that's definitely happening.

Thanks everyone, well pleased with how its running. Ill hopefully get it properly finished off this week once i get the land rover back together.

Yes Ron, thats my other hobby, 1/32 gloster gladiator and an Airco DH9a in the background. Usually do plastic modelling when it gets too late to be making noise in the shed

Finished! Other than a base, I dont get on with woodwork so that may be a future project in itself! Did the last few bits tonight, gland packing, valve chest studs, oil cups and cladding. Also touched up the paintwork in places, once thats dry properly Ill do a proper running vid and more pics in the finished gallery. Thanks for following along, got a toolmaking project next (hemingway metal folder) and then its back on my Tich project

Congratulations on this successful Stuart S 50.
I really like the red-brown color.
It would have been the right color for my Wolf Lokomobile.
Unfortunately I didn't find anything suitable at the time.
The factory color was then referred to as ox blood red.

Thanks all, Im very pleased with how its worked out, Michael, the paint I used was LMS Maroon from Phoenix precision paints, always liked that colour, my loco will probably go in a similar colour scheme eventually
