StirlingSouth.com and The Little Engine Pages are now companion sites. Both sites will be concerned primarily with Stirling Engines, but all types of model engines are fair game! In these pages you will see a variety of engines made by us as well as other model makers. We welcome comments on what you see here, as well as suggestions for additional information sources. If you have built an engine that you think is special, and wish to show it to others, please contact us and we will include it if we feel that it is suitable for these pages.

In the index bar to your left are links to our other pages. Some content is right here, while other content is on The Little Engine Pages, but all our pages are linked from the index column on both sites. We have tried to make the movement from one page to another as seamless as possible, so if you can't navigate successfully, please let us know what is broken.

Good Modeling!   Roy & Richard

Computer Animation!

The first engine that Roy and Richard collaborated on was a "flame licker" called "Straight Arrow".  It took its name from the straight-line motion imparted to the connecting rod by an unusual gear-within-a-gear mechanism on the crankshaft. Click on the image for a simulation of the gear action.   Photos of the real engine can be found by clicking here.

We have also updated the Test Tube Rhombic mathematical analysis page with an animation that should make clear the action of the engine. Take a look here.
