Default Stationary engine self build kit

Hi
Wondered if there are stationary kits out there for self building. If anyone can shed any light on this that would be grand.

Thanks

There are certainly quite a selection of models of stationary engines - have a look at The Engineer's Emporium.

I can't see it on the we site but Dan Howden recently mentioned in another thread that the Engineer's Emporium do a Tom Senior casting set which would probably class as a full size 'small power' replica rather than model.

That looks rather nice, and a very reasonable price too.

R&B water jacket always looks a bit wrong to me. ISTR there was a thread on one of the model engineering forums about making a hopper cooled version which might be nicer.

Here's the Red Wing engine

http://www.forest-classics.co.uk/red...co_engines.htm

Gade and John Deere engines

http://www.martinmodel.com/MMPengines.html

More here:

http://www.steamshed.com/hitmiss.html

...and lastly there was some talk that the Anson Museum were offering castings for the Alyn Foundry Gardner gas engine kit. I don't know if this came to fruition, but it might be worth an email to the museum.

Seen a few of those at shows Phillip. I particularly like the air-cooled Redwing.
