This 1/4 scale Red Wing stationary engine was made by Tim Junk, of Colorado, in 2000. Tim purchased twelve casting kits with the intent to sell completed engines to help pay for the kits, and he would keep an engine or two. His inspiration came from an old family photo he found of his great grandfather standing next to the full-size Red Wing engine on his farm. Tim completed the engines and sold what he needed to recover his costs.
The 1/4 scale Red Wing measures 14.5”-long, 9.5”-wide, and 13.5”-tall including the oiler and base. It has a bore of 1.25” and a stroke of 2”. It burns gasoline on spark ignition that is produced by a buzz coil at the rear of the engine. Mr. Gombert received the engine from his friend, Jim Barad and faithfully restored it to its present condition.
