That Norton engine looks like a full-sized one I helped rebuild too many
years ago. The blued pipe makes me think that model actually runs.
These guys are much better at miniaturization than I ever will be. Great
I would think it would at least be capable of running anyway.
Those guys are pretty serious about stuff like that.
Some where I've got a link stuck away to a V-8 engine - about the
size of a shoe box - complete with a couple of MPEGs of it running -
with sound. Sounds like a very large, very pissed, bumble bee, in a
very big hurry. Very cool.
So, now when you get frustrated, you can look at that page, and
decide it maybe isn't so bad after all LOL I don't know if you've
ever been to the Smithsonian, but they've got a rather large doll house
on exhibit, about 5 stories or so, if I recall right. And, I believe
it's all framed, just like a full size house. Last time I was there was
about 1972-3 - stationed at the Pentagon, and visited the Smithsonian
every 3 months or so. If you decide to visit it, during the cold
weather is the best time, loads less visitors then, and you should be
able to park just about in front of the doors to each building. In the
summer you'd probably be lucyk to park withing 10 blocks of the
building. I'd drive and park in the winter; in the summer I'd usually
walk over, and take a taxi back - otherwise way too much hassle parking,
and I'd wind up walking further in the end.
Oh, yeah. Are you gonna scale the dollhouse to a specific size
doll? There are rules, charts, dimensions, whatever, for that type of
thing. I've seen them on my searching, but never kept anything. Barbie
dolls for example. Or, in your case, maybe GI Joe. LMAO
