A model that shows the moving parts on a steam engine. This is a section of a famous one, the Flying Scotsman. The model is 1:10 scale (each wheel is 8 inches in diameter) The model had to be made by hand, because I wasn’t able to use a lasercutter and it took longer to finish than it should have. I wanted the wheels to be turned by a motor, but instead they were turned by hand.
