That mess is now the beautiful engine in the video?

Yes, all brass parts are newly made from solid material - even the chimney with crown
The piston, rod and cylinder top are completely rebuilt. The cast frame of the engine
was badly broken and screwed together invisibly. Paint only a bit restored/relined.
The flywheel was one of the Parts that were still fine and I just needed to give it a good polish.
The platform itself couldn't be saved - I used a piece of old parquet flooring and added a blued steel frame.
Gave some work on the lathe - but that's part of the game..
