Stuart Turner Sun

My second Stuart Turner engine and one i've been after for a while. This is a fine example of a Stuart Turner Sun model steam engine.
First introduced in 1927 these were made up till 1990. Stuart supplied them in 3 forms, unmachined castings, machined castings and a
ready to run model. They did 3 models in this series, the smaller Star, this one the Sun and a larger Sirius. These engines are very compact,
with 3/4" bore and stroke twin cylinders they were primarily designed for use in boats.
