Default Model Machining Red Wing Engine Tutorial

I found a real interesting website, where an electrician and hobby machinist named Don Giandomenico built a stunning Red Wing engine with magneto. He also did a steam engine and lots of airplanes. It reminded me of the manner which Wayne Grenning documents his restorations here, and I learned a lot about machining by going through the extensive photos and text narration. I thought it would be of interest here too. http://www.rcdon.com/html/red_wing_engine_project.html



From Don's website:

"This kit took a total of 186 hours over a four month period to complete. That is not including the 75+ hours I spent taking a total of 5,400 photos and then making a 31 page article with 1,358 photos :0P That averages out to over 16 hours of work each week additional to my already busy life :0P I have to admit it was a lot of fun though ;0)"

Kevin i would say the Brian Thomas built redwing isnt too bad either,when you get them to run this low thats a job well done,also Brian Thomas has a hot rod he built powered by a supercharged packard motor,i have seen the PM research steam engine that the fellow you posted has build its pretty nice too,nice job on both engines,impressive thats for sure.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_Cpa8e4hhPE

If anyone wants to see the original Red Wing the model is based on, it is at Little Log House Pioneer Village in Hastings Minnesota.
