Re: 1867 Otto Langen IC engine

:) Great solution!!!! I particularly like the way you are cutting the Mortises. I have always wanted to build an accurate scale field gun... but the carriage wheels have scared me off. You seem to have an elegant solution. Hope you will continue to share your progress. I'm also interested in how you...
