Engine Builds -ie. Visible V-8 , How about this .

Okay ;

 Youse guys think Visible V-8s are fun ? Try Airfix's " Maudsley's Paddle Wheel Steam " engine ! . except the actual pistons everything is there . Now there is a hitch here . Do any of you know what an oscillating Cylinder engine is . Yup , the cylinders move from side to side as the crank turns .

     Concerning that , the crank is in two pieces and has ten journals .

  This kit used to be motorized too . I found all the stuff except the Motor and Battery Box ( I think that was the base ) . Anyway , when I can get around the New camera functions I will send some pics . This thing will make you think twice about engines !

This will be worth looking at.  They came up with some incredible engineering during the 1800s Industrial Revolution, and I'm fascinated by it.  Cheers, oldcarguy, and thanx.
