Time to dispose of one of the projects I bought in a fit of enthusiasm years ago and now have to admit, I have neither the skills or time to complete.
Spotted in a local auction house, this 1:12 scale model of a Stothert & Pitt beam engine looks pretty good. Whoever made it did a good job. Most of the remaining work seems to involve assembling the cylinder and some valve gear. Sadly, it's going to take machining and lathery and much as I'd like to aquire the skills, that dream is a long way off.
So, the engine is up for sale on eBay, for quite a lot less than the current cost of the kit - basically the same price I paid for it.
I did enjoy laying out the parts for the photo though, so at least I got a bit of fun out of it.
