A page to list individuals work and collect together gallery contributions from different people. If you would like a page about you and your models then do drop me a line and we will see what we can put together – visit the About page to see how to contact us.
Tubal Cain – a name I’ve known for the model engineering bible that I keep in the workshop, real name Tom Walshaw designed a number of model engines published in Model Engineer.
Beautiful 1/5th and 1/6th scale working model aero engines.
We have a number of model engines from Mick featured on our pages.
We had to have a Stefan Gasparin gallery page as he is for me the number one person in the design and manufacture of CO2 engines. These are engines that use compressed CO2 as their energy source and primarily designed for indoor free-flight model aircraft.
Stefan has been making CO2 motors since 1972, but started making them on a commercial scale since the early 1990’s. Putting into production 60 CO2 motors makes him the expert in this field. These engines range from the micro single cylinder 1.6mm bore and 1.3mm stroke all the way up to a V12 with a 5mm bore and 4mm stroke.
Cherry Hill – one of the finest model engineers and I think I need to pull together a page about her and the phenomenal models.
J.E. Howell – a designer of a number of model engines.
JohnsMachines – a model engineer with a passion for making everything. Traction engines, stationary engines, boilers. A well written blog that follows John around museums and his workshop.
These two brothers designed a series of model engines based on a particular cylinder, piston and head. They didn’t stop there, they designed model aircraft, windmills and constructed a range of radio control models.
LBSC – Curly Lawrence was perhaps the finest model steam locomotive designer.
Jan Ridders Modelbouw – own designs, based on general working principles and ideas, mainly acquired surfing Internet websites in this field. In fact, the underlying physics fascinates me more than the mechanics as such. A good notion of the working principles can lead to creative and unique solutions, according to my explicit parole: “simplicity is the characteristic of the real truth”.
Over 100 years since these models were first made available as sets of castings.
Radio controlled models and flying at it’s best.
I’ve been making models since around 1977 when I made a radio controlled Perkasa motor torpedo boat. Since then the models have been varied from miniature houses, engines and even a robot.
The machining on these model engines is just wonderful. From single cylinder through to 9 cylinder Wright Whirlwind radial.
A wonderful chance to see a master at work.
One of the most famous model engine designers from the 20th Century. A description of his designs along with images of engines made to those plans where available. Why not join in and send us images and details of your own Westbury model engine.
The gallery pages are a mix of links to pages on glue-it.com and to pages off-site. If you think there is a model engineer who should be listed here then please do drop me a line [email protected]
