...don´t now wether i am right here, but i did not find a section with live steam.

Momentarily all my projects are at sixes and sevens, however it´s no use:

I present to you the world-wide first supercompact steam engine with RC-Threespeed-Gear!


and dressed:

From the three speeds meanwhile two left, because I needed one for the neutral gear. The steam engine, a SUN from Stuart, has a wide rev range, but is not self starting. Gives a nice sound in neutral. To avoid burtsing the boiler, an rc gas valve will be installed on board.

Apropos installation: i will insert the whole fun in my Auto Union Boliden, the star of my next Blockbuster " Desert B 2 ½ " . (see first part

Desert B (6 min 40 sec)

Publication date spring 2012, thus the film, not the Bolide, that is already so well finished:

The V8 has a new destiny: as half chain engine it is used then in the fourth part of the Desert B Saga, work title " Bear War" or " Retarded" or goodness knows…
