Hello Graham!

An impressive build! I especially like the brass fittings - they are so clean that they almost look unreal! How did you make them?

Thanks for sharing and have a nice day

Oh WOW ! ! !

 Now that is worthy of a public viewing Museum. Nice structure and attention to detail and finish. When are you going to do a Steam-Boat calliope ?

That is friggin' amazing!!! Love the brass fittings too! Love the era, back then machines were works of art, not something to be used and then tossed away as soon as a newer one came along.

Beautiful!

I love those old machines, either steam or IC.  I would love to build a Rumley oil burning tractor but have never been able to find plans.  I have taken a lot of pictures at threshing shows, and maybe someday I'll have enough to be able to draw my own.  I wish there were more kits of that kind of stuff.  I have seen a few tractor kits of newer tractors, but not the old stuff.  I do have an old steam fire engine kit, but the decals are stickers.  Even though I sometimes make my own decals, I have had no luck making gold-colored ones.

Not a throw away comment, but I really would be curious to know what the CORRECT decal printer is. I'm sure I couldn't afford it but at least I would know what to look for.
