Default 1/2 scale Kitten Steam engine/1/4 scale case

Saw on the Nixon Auction website, they will be auctioning a 1/2 scale Kitten. Wondering if anyone knew anything about it. The auction is in Colorado end of Spetember. Link is below

BTW - I really like the Kitten model at NTA a couple weeks ago - sharp engine

There is another 1/4 scale Terning case on EBAY. Looks like a nice one. they even faked the buttstrap on it

Even though this engine is listed as a Terning engine, it does not appear to look like one of theirs. Unless Aaron has made some casting changes I would argue that it is. The boiler doesnt look like one of theirs either. Haven't written this to start a heated debate, just my thoughts... (Maybe Aaron could bring us up to speed) or me...

I've seen that same Case model for sale on Ebay before. I don't remember if it sold last time, but with a reserve it possibly did not.

Just a word of caution, the seller has ZERO feedback and registered June 18, 2006. I'm pretty sure it was a good bit longer ago that I last saw that engine for sale.

Nice pictures though.

The Kitten scale model listed on Hubert Palos sale belongs to Don Redlin of Watertown,SD. He got it as trade-in on a 5/8 freelance double from Mr Landuaer, spelling?, who has several Kittens in Indiana. Don gave it a tune up and repaint. The case is ebay #160007493261

I guess we know what the ebay reserve is on the 1/4 scale case. A person has posted a 1/4 scale case on the classifieds sounding very similar to the case on ebay - both from Iowa $13,500
