This is the only model I know of made by Midland Models. It is interesting in that it uses the SEL 1560 engine unit with minor modifications. In this respect, it is similar to the Mamod ME3. The horizontal boiler is 135mm long x approx 50mm diameter and has a pair of Babcock style water tubes underneath. It is fired by a rather dangerous looking 4 wick meths burner; the meths tank is mounted above the level of the wick holders! The boiler is fitted with a filler plug (which does not look original), a safety valve and a steam take-off. There is no water level indication. Steam is fed via a displacement lubricator to the back of the SEL engine port face. The engine is an SEL 1560 with minor modifications to the cylinder and flywheel (it might be an earlier or later version). The engine frame does not have the name SEL engraved in it but I'm sure it is the same engine.
