Any interest in a separate section for Hot Air or Model Engines out there?

I saw a few Hot Air engines, Robinson/Stirling(?)at Astle, and was intrigued, would like to hear from anyone who has made one.

Hot air / Stirling stuff is a bit thin on the ground so I reckon it would be a bit of a skinny sub - but hey, if anybody wants to kick off I'll chip in with my never-beginning knowledge on the subject!

A model engine sub istricky to define - always a blurred division between models and 'real' small power engines (Leek, Stuart etc). And what about model hot air engines? Now I'm just being silly aren't I ;-)

But surely IC is what this forum is about? If you go down the hot air engine route then shall we have a section for stationary steam engines? Then what? One for electric motors aswell?

Dont know, its a stationary engine forum, a hot air engine, is a engine which can be stationary, as said a Other would cover all vatiations of Non IC.
