Precision-made working steam engine model

Precision-made working steam engine modelHere is a handsome working steam engine model that burns special dry fuel tablets. I would love a steam engine on my desk to, you know: blow off some steam.


Hello? this thing on?

From the product description:
Powerful, precision-made horizontal engine with grooved pulley & balanced flywheel for driving objects. Nickel plated brass boiler, polished fittings including oscillating cylinder, safety valve, steam whistle, etc. 7" chimney. No electricity required. Burns dry fuel tablets. Complete; ready to operate. 6" x 7" metal base.

If you want to make your own from kit then you could also try Polly Model Engineer Ltd or Stuart Models. For those who are electrically minded, The Old Model Company provides kits for historic electric engines, I expect those make less mess on the table.
