1/3 Scale Austin Seven
« on: September 17, 2023, 09:44:42 PM »
Hello All. Great web site. Some fantastic work.
I've been building a 1/3 scale 1933 Austin Seven engine for many, many, many...... years now.
I'll post some pictures / videos when I sort them out.

Oooo! I'm looking forward to this. I have a full size 1933 Austin Seven, and hopes of building a 1/3rd size engine. One day.

 :hi: Rob,

There are a lot of fans of "Chummy" on the forum. We will all be interested to see your work  :)

I've taken the head off to fix a small leak.

When I first saw the picture - I was in doubt about it being a model .... until I spotted the Yuasa Battery in the background  :praise2:

I see it has the 4 bladed export fan fitted. Must be from a hot climate  :)

I think that is the best model engine I have seen. My 1930 A7 special has a four blade fan because the radiator is shortened. It also has a semi-sidedraught S.U, similar to yours, but at an angle.
More pics please!

This is a beautiful piece of model engineering.  Will be interested to see more pictures and information, as I'm sure will many others of the forum members.  Dave

I've made the radiator core which took a lot of experimentation. The engine gets very hot very quickly, so I've put an electric water pump on it. I'm hoping once it's run in I can remove it. Oh yes, and the four blade fan helps.
