Sorry Alex. They are not intended as finished works but simply concept sketches and aide memoirs. Will hopefully get the scanner back up and running in future which will hopefully improve quality of images. Hopefully these sketches are sufficient to give an idea of what I am hoping to achieve. Thank you for the feedback which is very much appreciated. Am going to be doing some further drawings to help me scale the figures properly and help with the sculpting.
As and when they get done will make sure they have better clarity. Aw man, saw the new post, and was hoping we'd have a prototype! Still love these, btw These look very nice, I personally prefer the dwarf on top of the machine instead of the one holding it. That's how it will be WarWizard sorry Red.

See all. It should always be borne in mind that the pipes must be much larger than the requisite discharge at the drills, for if it were otherwise there would be great friction resulting from the pressure of air constantly rushing through to furnish a sufficient quantity to drive the machines; for example, if a shaft were 1, feet in depth, it would be preferable to place the reservoir at a depth of say feet, and between that point and the drills small pipe and flexible hose would be used; thus between the compressor and reservoir it would be advisable to use pipe quite large, for in doing so there would be an absence of friction, the pipes being larger they would always be stored full, and in a measure act as a reservoir for the entire distance.
The compressor must be placed adjoining the steam or water power employed to drive it, so that one person will be sufficient to attend properly to both. If water power is used to work the compressor, the water wheel is applied by attaching to the shaft of time wheel a belt or gearing, and connecting with the compressor. Steam compressors have a steam engine attached and are driven by steam direct; others have a driving pulley and are operated by a belt from a separate engine or water wheel.
In using water power there is a saving of fuel, cost of steam boiler, and in the price of the compressor. With water there is only the cost and erection of wheel, while compressed air can be conveyed for miles if necessary. Political Sim. Naval Combat. Combat Racing. World War I.

Doesn't quite match up with any of the other overtypes shown above. Note the vent holes - not round like all of the overtypes shown above. Fired this one up with borrowed burner and pressure valve , and it ran like a champion.
Very smooth runner, no leaks. Interesting little fellow. Has the old pewter Doll bade. Damaged on nose cap around smokestack mount, rear sight glass muddled up.
Should make for an interesting, if not extensive, repair job. The rest is in good shape. No burner. Early style spring loaded slide valve.
Larger version of the Posing below with it's little brother. An excellent running engine. Somewhat larger than the one above, but not as complete nor in as good condition. Cylinder not marked DC, or if it was, the decal is long gone. This was not an uncommon event - I have seen several Doll engines, including a couple of larger overtypes, with the John Bing electric conversion.
Electrically heated engines were popular in the US, largely because the US had the widest distribution of electric power by The one unanswered question is why John Bing would be converting Doll engines, when the parent Bing Werke corporation produced similar engines.
I don't have the answer to that question. Smaller vertical, single action slide valve. Marked DC on the bottom of the base. A solid, eager runner. A pair of verticals that should yield one running engine.
Boilers are slightly different in construction. Believe it or not, the only pieces missing from this model are the smokestack and the fill plug. The rest is there, including the burner. Sight glass is intact. Covered with appears to be solidified kerosene or diesel fuel, which is turning out to be the devil to get off. Partially disassembled for cleaning. There is a crack in the boiler where the steam feed line is attached, which can be fixed with a sleeve on the inside. Original paint is about gone.
Just enough there to see the color scheme: black with red highlights and pinstripes. Unlike the ship's engine in the Bing section, this one has two complete steam cylinders.
