Everything you need to make a Millie steam engine

Here’s a fun project that you can make over the course of a few evenings that will amaze your friends. This project was originally published in the May 1997 issue of Modeltec (no longer in publication).

The kit includes both steel and brass billet for the various parts to be machined. Producing the finished engine requires a series of turning, drilling, and boring processes explained in the step-by-step illustrated instructions that come with the kit.
