First trip around the engine slipped a bit. After that, all went fine.

Simply beautiful!

The icicles on the brake wheel really make it look like Maine.

THANKS Si, Ray, Woodie!

I finally got around to making a Johnson bar for No 11.
It is actually a DPDT knife switch for reversing (DC polarity) direction.

So much better than the plug arrangement I had been using as a makeshift reverser.
