Steam Aviation Engine Casting Kit
Model Steam Aviation Engine (1/2 Scale)

Yes, a steam airplane engine! You can't imagine our amazement when we walked into the Warner Robins Air Force Museum and beheld a steam aviation engine on display.

It struck me as being so unique, I decided a half scale model of it was a must.
