i am currently working on a 3/4" scale. it is a lot of work. so far i have the rear wheels completed and will move on to the front by the end of the week.

Are plans available? Approximately how big will this Engine be when completed and how heavy?

the 3/4" has a 5" rear wheel dia. weight will be around 20 pounds when complete.
i found a source for drawings at amazon.uk (only place i found that has books). you may also do a google search. the uk plans where expensive.
another source in the usa is coles power models. they have plans for a case 65, in 1" and 2". 2" can pull you around and very detailed.

try www.steamech.com, they have two sets of plans for steam tractors. another site is www.colespowermodels.com. coles, plans are pricey too. anyone who wants to contact off site can reach me at: missy339@msn.com

you can get casting , info ect . (not sure if arron still sell casting its to bad, he has some nice kits)

the coles engine is a nice engine my dad has one and we hope to steam it up this year for the fist time . We got it from a guy but he passed away before he could show use how to run it. Check out utube for a real cool 1/4 scale case traction engine. www.utube.com ithink thats right. I bought the coles 2" , arrons 1/4, and 1/3 scale planns all are worth the money. hope this helps.
