  • Today was my day to run around to different doctors offices getting lined up for physio, x-rays, meeting with surgeon, yada, yada, yada. Yesterday I spot puttied and primed the engine base and flywheel and painted them. This afternoon I took off the masking tape and paper. I'm happy with the results of my painting.

        At least he didn't paint it seafoam green. I remember when I painted the battleshaper seafoam green. I posted a picture here. The resulting comments were enough that I repainted it a much darker green.

        • Paint it guacamole green. If that;s too light, wait a few days and it will turn olive drab.

            • For a first time "Paint everything", I'm pretty pleased with this. There is almost as much work painting everything as there is in machining it. I'm happy with my Canadian maple leaf. I bought a little flag at the five and dime and used it as reference while I hand sketched the same leaf only about 3/4 as large as the one on the flag to make it fit. I wasn't sure enough of my ability to paint it right onto the white base, so I cut out a piece of 0.060" steel and painted it red, then epoxied it onto the base.

                • brian Rupnow , You should curl the edges of the Maple Leaf up a bit and then show off your "New Steam Roller" with the proof that it works as designed 😇. I have enjoyed following this build and you have an outstanding talent for all aspects of the build. Excellent Work!!!!!

                        • The blue and red is not that bad. It's a bit unusual, but..... The engine looks very good on that base, red and blue don't hurt that.

                          I probably would have left the con rods and valve rods polished instead of painted, but that's not a big issue.

                          Now, that green pipe, well,
