May as well pitch in with some pictures I have too. The thread has been a great read so far!

Two are of a 1/3 scale Case 65 built by Alan Schurman around 2000-2001. It was one of three he built and it is now owned by his nephew, Lester Schurman. It was fired once when it was built then put away in a shed. A few years back, Alan allowed me to pull it out and get it going again. It is a very fun engine to run and only has a few minor issues. It needs a fair bit of cosmetic work after sitting for so long but Lester is working on that. I do not know what castings it was built from.

The other pictures are of a 1/4 scale 32? Reeves compound owned by George Hoffman. It's horribly dwarfed by George's 36 Rumely and 25 GS!He bought it this past year and is working on getting it running now. If I recall correctly, it was built 100% from scratch by a man in Alaska. He made his own plans, foundry, patterns, castings, boiler, and etc. It even has a working simplex valve. It'll be a blast to see it running when George finishes his work on it.

Here's a video of the Case in action: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Hk1l_Ne_l-I It has an awful shrill whistle on it sadly because it's original one, which was perfect, was stolen.

And here's an album of more pictures of the Case and the Reeves: http://imgur.com/a/fCupa

On a side note, I've got a naughty little idea running through my head... How many people would be interested in castings for a big Rumely? Something along the lines of a 1/2 or 1/3 scale 30hp or 36hp maybe...

I'll share my recent addition a 1/6 or 2" scale 65hp Case. This engine was built by Norm Janson of Bay City MI, He also built my 1/3 scale. Wish i could find one the the 1/4 scale engines he built also but no idea where they are except one was shipped to California so that"s a start i guess..

A home built Baker looks to be bigger than a half scale. It was sold last weekend at auction in western Ohio and is going to Penn.

By size comparison of the car in the background it looks to be a 1/4 scale, 3 inch to the foot. A 1/3 Scale, 4 inch to the foot would be a little over 7 foot long . And 4 feet high.

It's not 1/3 scale it's 1/4 scale. Talked to him a week ago and got dimensions on it. He would have a hard time putting it on the table if it was 1/3. I think he messed up the 3" as 1/3 scale.

I think my 1/3 is almost that heavy definitely need a pretty stout work table to put it on let alone how to get it back down.

The miniature Case I mentioned in post #321 is a 1/3 scale of a 65hp. The engine is roughly 7ft long and 2.5ft tall. It weighs 1250lbs under steam. Still can pull like a real tractor though. Today we had it running and a friend pulled his truck with it while I held the brakes (pretty hard too). It sounded great.

Here are the only two I got on video from Mt Pleasant. Was my first time there as I usually attend Rollag, so didn't get much footage...
