Hello again,

after ten months I've finished my Allchin traction engine model. The used
drawings are by Julius de Waal
(https://www.modelengineeringwebsite.com/Allchin_1_4_scale.html). The details of
these drawings are quite good (it's 27 sheets after all!). It was fun doing
this, figuring out how to SDL all the parts.

Cheers
Ton.

Brilliant :-)

I used drawings from the same source when I did Stephenson's Rocket:

As you say - great fun working out the shapes, and satisfying when it 
all fits together.

Congratulations! That's a great piece of work indeed. Very well done, Ton.

So... what is the next project going to be? ;-)

Really excellent modelling, the level of detail is fantastic!

Wowza.
You really did find some drawing and go whole hog, didn't you?   :O

That's pretty amazing.

Cross-sectional views?

Excellent work as always, Ton.   You have a remarkable amount of patience and
dedication!

Thanks everybody.

All surfaces and cylinders are from roundedge.inc. That really improves the look
a lot, much more natural.
The bolts and nuts are from Blender. I couldn't find a Povray equivalent, so I
want to create a Bolt macro, and a Nut macro. I found already that f_helix2()
creates a good looking thread. Then throw a selectable head on top and done!
Here are two more snapshots of my traction engine:

Cheers
Ton

Musing: It must be great fun to drive such an engine! Especially 
compared to modern cars...
