    • Philip - I may have missed something down the line:

      I hope you chose the center boiler in the above pictures. (JMO)

      The engine is done nicely and I think goes best with the center boiler. (again JMO)

      Keep up the good work!!!

      OH yeah!!! Glad you chose the metal roof too.... ;-)

      • you didn't miss much.I work at a snails pace

        Yep.. center boiler is my choice also. The bigen has a slight can't to the stack I'm going to cast it once all the details are added. May be awhile........I'm in no hurry, lots going on in the reality world at present. :crazy:

        • Philip, I has been a while since my last visit, slow but sure works. Nice steam engine. I haven't seen one like that before. Good choice on the boiler. Keep at it.

          • Brudda Philip, The logs are jammin' up on the Big River. The push wants to know if the Maru's coming of the ways or if he needs to round up some riverpigs with pikes and peaveys,'cuz the mill is crying "more logs, more logs." (Translation)-Philip, How's it coming, no posts in a while, probably too much 1:1 stuff gettin' in the way. Steve

              exactly....burning candle from both ends.

              did manage a visit to the old stomping ground in green castle kentucky. Put up a free little website

              www.green-castle-ky.weebly.com most likely bore you to death. stomped around the old lock and dam after many years was pretty cool.

              • Philip, I enjoyed the website. I can look at old photos for hours. There are many people here in Leslie Mi from Kentucky, most moved here during the depression. I know a lady from Monkeys Eyebrow (near Missouri)I'm sorry to here about your brother, my wife's cousin has ALS. Today was the first day since my brother's passing that I had time or inclination to work on any of my On30 stuff.Busy with reenacting, gardens etc. Steve

                • Thanks Steve. I will get back to the bench when all the rest of the 1:1 stuff is taken care of.

                  no time at the present.....

                  Quick question...Were belaying pins used on a vessel such as the Maru? Such as an deck anchor when tying off barges etc?

                  Glad your doing some modeling again!

                  • The engine looks great, looking foward to seeing the boiler finished. Roland

                        Yeah, I'd say thanks for finding it as well. I lost track of this long ago. I started when the thread first came out with this build. And dropped off from there. Maybe I can keep up with progress now once again. This is an interesting build Philip.

                        • Thanks Lou! It stalled because of chain drive and modeling burn-out. I will most likely change the original design to shaft driven. I'm bad about finishing.
