Tom; A half scale of a 10" would be a 5". A half scale of a 6" would be a 3". I have both. What are you looking for? Ron

Hi Ron,
I saw a Rider-Ericsson running model engine at a show and was told it was a 1/4 scale model. It was 17 inches tall and the flywheel was 9 inches in diameter.
The piston was about 2 inches in diamneter. This is the size running model I'm looking for or a little larger would be fine also. Do you have one for sale?
Thanks,
Tom

There are three sizes listed on www.myersengines.com
However these are casting kits that would have to be machined.
