ML Midge, 1 off completed by me, plus most bits for another 4
Sugden Special, 2 off
Nalon Viper Mk 1
Nalon Viper Mk 2

Work in Progress
Elfin 1.49 2 off with cast crankcase
Elfin 1.49 1 off with billet crankcase.
Nalon Viper Mk 3, hypothetical, based on Mk1, but with one piece crankcase
MegaMidge 2.5cc, based on Mark Lubbock ML Midge x 150%.  Drawings show side port at the moment but I am thinking about a rear rotary valve one......

I do more drawing and thinking than machining!!

Some of the members here are quite prolific!
I haven't built a lot of engines, but it seems like it because they take so long!

    Upshur Farm Engine (IC)
    Elmer's Standby (air)
    Elmer's Opposed (air)
    Martin Models 1/4 scale Gade Hit and Miss Engine (From Castings)
    Jan Ridders Debbie 2 Stroke Engine (IC)
    Chuck Fellows Air Powered Hit and Miss Engine
    Lucy Acrylic Air Engine

Hopefully, when I retire the list will become longer.

There are some very impressive lists posted here.  My list is quite short, but I hope to grow it over the next few years.  I hope that more pictures will be added.

(2). Thayer School Stirling Engines
Stuart D10 with reversing
Stuart 10H
Stuart 5A*.

*The 5A build was started by my father shortly before retiring in 1982.  A few castings were from Stuart, the rest was designed and fabricated by my father.  Age caught up with him and many mistakes were made in both design and machining.  He gave up on the engine in 1990 and gave it to me in 2010.  It sat in pieces until 2020 when I decided that it was time to either finish it or scrap it.  Most parts had to be repaired or replaced and the cross head, standard, pump, base and bearings had to be redesigned, (my father had warned me that these parts were not well though out).  The resulting engine is something that I treasure.  We didnít have many father and son projects.  I wish that he could have seen it run.

I donít care much for blue engines, but it was my fathers favorite color and he had already painted some parts a light blue.  The dark blue is my compromise.

The Reeves Unicorn and Stuart 7 were machined and built by my father.  He also built the ship model which I recently restored.  He was highly skilled.
