Back to Front Design

Not sure if I have a weird way of approaching the design of a new model engine or just like the idea of starting with perhaps the most artistic part and then developing the idea from there…..

100mm or 4" diameter flywheel

100mm or 4″ diameter flywheel

This flywheel is 100mm diameter and 25mm think and made from a solid disc of cast iron.

The engine? Well my thought is that this will form the basis for a new horizontal steam engine – single double acting cylinder or maybe a compound – not sure yet…..will add the description and images to the model engineering gallery as it progresses.
