Another major piece of the engine. The pushrods and rockers will,
when the other ends are connected, operate the slide valves that
admit steam to the piston. That piece is next.
cheers Jim

I've got to hand it to you Jim, you're definitely committed, at over 800 parts it's not an easy task...

You are doing some "microwork" here Jim.
Do you use any kind of magnifying glasses for this?
(I use high power reading glasses)

Thanks Mike,

No I just use my regular reading glasses but they are bifocal due to the
eye being unable to change focus after the cataract operation.
They are computer screen distance and reading distance. Maybe the
reading distance is a little closer on these.


The driving rods ard rockers are added and a mystery handle. This completes
sheet thirteen of the instructions and the engine is essentially complete.
Maybe the handle is the reverse control.
Next sheet is mounting and connecting up steam pipes.

Thanks friends,
The engine and condenser is finally finished and installed.
There is only mainly steam pipes and the prop/rudder remaining to complete the hull.
cheers Jim
