Default 1/8th scale D

Here is a picture of an 1/8 scale D that runs. It can be seen at the Badger Steam and Gas Engine show in 05. it also will be part of a seminar on Model engineering by Jerry Kieffer at NAMES (North American Model Engineering Show) in Southgate Michingan at the end of April.

I saw it last year not quite finished at badger. It was unbelievable. Even the instruments were being made to scale (about 1/4 in. dia) and would work. The transmission was an exact copy. The radiator tubes and fins also were an exact copy as was the rest of the tractor. Larry

I've not seen Jerry's JD "D," but have seen some of his other creations. He is in a league all by himself. If you ever get a chance, you owe it to yourself to go see his masterpieces.

I got lucky and had a chance to visit with Jerry at PRIME in Eugene, Oregon, a few years ago. Seeing his miniatures is only half the experience; one does not really appreciate the challenge of building them until Jerry starts pointing out some of the details.

Jerry built a working steam engine. Then, he built a hardwood box to put it in. The box sits nicely on a wooden pencil's eraser. That gives you an idea how tiny the engine is!

Regards,

Orrin
