HOW TO BUILD MINIATURE

Title
4 sets of plans PLUS a special bonus!
For the model hobbyist, here are 4 miniature engines that offer enormous power for their size. These engines can be used to power miniature boats, trains, cars, planes, or whatever! Providing as much as 1 h.p., they can power even large-size models. Or, the builder can choose to scale them up to achieve even greater power.

Our manual, How To Build 4 Miniature Engines, presents the fully detailed plans, photos and drawings for building each of these outstanding engines in your home shop. As 2 of the engines require castings for certain parts, the manual also includes the procedure for doing metal casting at home.

Slide-valve steam engine
Left & below: The slide-valve steam engine offers power, durability and good looks! It can be used for a variety of applications. The boiler (lower left photo) is itself extremely compact and will power the slide-valve or steam turbine engine with a small amount of fuel for about 1/2 hour. The boiler-engine combination can be used to power a boat (lower right photo) or other model.
(Engine: about 4¼" high;
boiler: about 6" high)
