Model Engines [ Miniature Steam, Jet, Stirling, V8 and More ]
Model Engine Projects, also referred to as “Model Engineering: can be tremendous fun for all. This page brings you the best model engine projects I’ve found together with my own projects that I’ve built. I’ve got a great interest in these projects, so there’s quite a lot of material here!
Model Steam Engines
I hope to make the model using CNC some day soon.
I’ve documented some history and the build of one such model on my Model Steam Turbine page.
The Comber Rotary is one of Elmer Verburg’s little model steam engine projects.
For this team build, I was responsible for the bearing blocks, and I used my first home CNC converted mill for the job
Unfortunately, I never finished the little engine because not all team members came through with parts. I should go back, finish the missing parts, and get it running.
In retrospect it was probably a touch ambitious for my machining skills at the time though the parts I made didn’t turn out badly at all.
This category is all about Miniature Engines of the internal combustion (IC) variety.

If you’re the sort of business mogul with enough money to own a Bugatti Chiron, I could certainly imagine your wanting to have one of these on display in your office.
A cool $9365 if you’d like to purchase one!
