    Let’s see... Travel Air 2000 airframe (plans available), Doble steam generator (reproductions available), and a two cylinder steam engine that I understand was adapted from something in a small contemporary locomotive (maybe available? At any rate Besler’s engine survives in a museum). I’d be game to fly a steam plane.
