Part 26, conclusion, by Vince Cutajar

When assembling the engine on the base it was a good thing that when I last removed the engine from the base I kept it all together.  So, all I had to do was put it on the unpainted parts of the base and bolt it with the studs I had made.  I also fitted the outrigger column and also the air inlet pipe; put the crankshaft through the bearings and shimmed the outrigger until the crankshaft could turn as smoothly as possible.  I knew I had to shim the outrigger but still took a while to get it to that sweet spot.

I fitted the rest of the main engine.

The rails were fitted along with the miniature glass oilers and other small items.  So it's finished!
