It's been a while since i've posted here, been busy, but here's the latest pic of my engine. My dad and I built this one back in 2003. Note the back wheels are not painted, we just got the right size wheels done last year. I just had it out for the first time this year this past Sunday.

This is not the best picture in the world, but you can still see. I had a small fire going in it that day.


Where is the relief valve!?

Caseboy,

From the looks of your smoke, can I assume you just put a "small" fire in it to see the effects of your labors? The two Jeff's have a good point, you should have had a safety and pressure guage on before lighting her off...but I can surely understand the excitement of putting her first fire in and I'm assuming that you didn't have it in long..."I had a small fire in it that day." Some will argue that you may have jumped the gun while others will take what you say as, well, someone wanting to enjoy the fruits of their labors. I'm assuming that under the guidance of your father that you didn't allow the fire to burn long, but rather just see the smoke curl out of the stack to sort of wet your appetite to continue your pursuit of finishing your first scale model. Working on models, especially with our dad, is extremely rewarding on many levels. I know the pride your dad is feeling for you and the time you two spend together...you on the other hand know what my ten year-old is experiencing when spending the same type of quality time in my shop doing what similar to what you are doing with your dad. That's great...just remember to do it safely so you and your dad can live to enjoy another wonderful day.

I don't see any fittings at all in the boiler, it may not have any water in it...

Caseboy,
I sell 1/2 scale castings kits for the 65 Case.....but finding a complete engine might be a little work and take a little patience.

Attached is some model pictures that I took at Mt Pleasant last weekend

Casemaker,

I'm out of "Thanks" again, but "thanks" for sharing all the photos of various scale models showing at Mt. Pleasant. They do get quite a few and quite a variety of them. I haven't seen the DRM Rumely's for a while, so it was nice to see they have shown again. Mike Parker's 1/2 scale Reeves with steering tender is one of the most beautiful scale models I have seen. It truly is a gem.

All of the models are neat...thanks for sharing with those of us that weren't able to make the show this year.

Lawrence

Snapped a couple of shots of this 1/3 scale K&G built without any castings several years ago. This was taken at the Elnora Indiana show yesterday.

I hijacked this link from the Heritage Park thread. Mark Corson took some awesome video of the scale part of the show at Heritage Park of North Iowa this year. After all, we can't look at videos of the 40 Gaar forever. Thanks, Mark!

just a bump....with a picture of a half scale 40hp Case built with a asme code boiler in Minn back in the 70's. Does anyone else know of any other half scale 40's ? I believe there is one a Rollag that runs the scale sawmill.

I like to see homebuilt engines... just to see what was used to build an engine. This one is near where I live but I have not seen able to go see it. The owner is more of a tractor man and does not know much about steam. He purchased it just like this... missing the governor and the throttle. One day I am going over there to see the condition and possibly getting it going.
What are these wheels off ?

This is a rare John Deere steam engine....I didnt know they made them either but here is the proof.

Does anyone have pictures of "The Goat" build by Mr. Arnold of Ohio? I remember pestering him when I was a child asking him question after question about the engine. If he only knew that his time was well spent answering all of them because his 1/2 scale was the second of two 1/2 scales that got me interested in the model steam side of the hobby.

Thank you!
