As I was growing up in the 1920s, my granddad had a threshing machine at his farm; when it threw sparks, I'd run! He also had a gas engine to pump water. Being around this machinery got me started making model gas and steam engines, of which I now have about 15. You could say the bug bit me real hard. Here are some I made from scratch.
