I started LloydswoodToyplans Jap Engine and am at the gratifying visual progress point of the the build. Base is Walnut while main engine is Poplar with Sassafras accent on some components.
This may sound like a dumb question
but is this plan based on an actual engine?
I have never heard of that brand before
Engine build is completed, nice satis feeling taking some pictures today.
I finished the last component today and positioned that on the Engine . Tomorrow I start a spray finish of Polyurethane.
interesting note on the build is that it was completed with miscellaneous pieces of Wood I had in the Shop.
Lloyds plan was excellent to follow and use and I found to errors or questionable features.
Another good day of enjoyable progress .
Thanks Lloyd, my intention is to continue steady build time on this Engine
Today I worked on the Chain Guard canister assembly, I had a nice piece of Cherry to use as the outer plate and am quite happy with having that on hand. Note- I used a piece of double sided tape to hold assembly in place for a visual check.
