Model Steam Engine Plans

 and Other Build Guides and Kits

Learn how to make a homemade model steam engine with our plans able to power many things (depending on size of course) from our easier single acting steam engine to our slightly more complicated double acting steam engine plans.

Learn how to build a working model steam engine from our steam engine blueprints sourced from all over the net by many fine builders.

We offer many free simple plans in pdf format for various styles and uses of model, many including instructions showing you how to make a homemade steam engine; be it a single or double acting, a single or multiple cylinder, easy or complicated, whatever you are looking for in a live steam project.

We cover turbines, boilers, stationary engines, boat engines, table engines, locomotives in the smaller scales, even a model steam car in the oddments which is a great kids toy. We have links to model traction engines (steam tractors), larger scale loco's and many other items, although most are on this site already, and the best of it is most of these are freely available to you, but sadly we do need to charge a very small fee as we have purchased a percentage of these plans to broaden our range for your benefit despite a lot of them being free on the internet.

If the download you want does not happen automatically (as can happen with older operating systems), to download the pdf you want select the page and right click it. Next select the 'save as' with a left click and save the page to your own computer wherever you wish (usually the desktop is easiest for retrieval purposes).

Take your time and explore the links to the side for more info.

Be aware though, some of these files are quite large and may require some time to download for slower connection speeds.
