Cotswold Heritage Model Engineering.

Following requests from our customer to produce a kit for the Model Engineer to machine and construct in the model engineering workshop, we have responded with the compact yet detailed design in 1/12 scale of a steam engine still in existence and preserved at Bath University.

The full size engine was manufactured at the Company's Newark Works, Bath and was exhibited at the Paris International Exhibition of 1867. The steam engine features a massive cast base with the beam supported by an entablature, itself carried on four tapered columns with bronze capitals. Bracing the columns are two ornate fretted arches adding significantly to the aesthetics of this beautiful steam engine.

Although the steam cylinder is today not lagged we are sure that it was in times past as close inspection shows where the wooden lagging would have attached. The Watt governor is contained within the columns and is belt and gear driven. The model steam engine follows closely this original specification with just a few parts adapted to ease the build.

The model engineering kit comprises a range of quality castings, laser cut parts, machine cut gears, bronze governor balls, copper pipe, wood lagging, comprehensive 99 sheet drawing pack, parts list, suggested fixings list and pre-cut bar stock. With a flywheel diameter of 152mm and a cylinder bore of 24mm this engine is readily machined on a lathe and milling machine of modest capacity.




The Stothert and Pitt Beam Engine kit has been featured in a series of articles written by Mr Anthony Mount in EIM Magazine Nov. 2002 - July 2003 and offers an illustrated guide to assist machining and building the model.

  • If your model engineering kit to machine is in stock at the time of ordering, where possible your order is dispatched the same or next working day. If your model is in production at the time of ordering, your payment card is not charged until your model is ready for dispatch. Customers placing an order that they require to be delivered on or before a certain date are advised to contact us directly.

    UK orders are usually dispatched using Parcelforce's tracked, 'express 24 hour' service. This service makes delivery on business days only and for outlying or remote parts of the UK may take longer than 24 hours.

    International orders may use Parcelforce's rapid Global Express, Euro Priority Business or Global Priority services. The initial stages of the checkout will calculate shipping to your country and select the most cost efficient shipping method we use before you commit to ordering a model. These services are some of the few on the market advertised as tracked and require signature / monitor delivery.

    For both UK and International parcels, we have negotiated a significant, double-digit discount with our carrier and this is passed on to the customer. Customers considering ordering more than one model are advised to email us directly to gain where possible a combined shipping quotation since the website calculates costs on each model being shipped individually.
