Wiggers Stirling Modellbau.
Wiggers Stiwi 2
The Stiwi 2 model is a tiny little engine model that is in serten ways a miniature of some of the much larger Stirlings that Wiggers made in their glorious days of full production. This Stiwi 2 model is important though for those that like this company, this becourse it is still fully available to purchace from their website. There for creating a open window for those that wish to buy one Wiggers model before the firm fully closes down.
Wiggers HH-96-210 /2
The model is not of the smallest but rank in the middle range between the small and the larger middle range desktop models. the engine is allmost 23 cm in length and about 16 cm tall. The flywheel is 12 cm with bent spokes on the variation that the standard model has the standard Wiggers 9cm wheel with straight spokes. The model is equipped with a speed regulator wheel.
The model mechanincs and production is absolute first class as the Wiggers models are. No where on the model is the finish anything but perfect to achieve the perfection result.
The Dubble beam engine come with a acrylic dust cover and a spotless finish to top it off. The model is prodused in very low numbers by Wiggers since the tansition to "Ready to run" models only in 2005. The rarity of the model combined with the sadness of seening models like this go out of production never to return from other then remakes and copycats in the amatour league make me sad to think about and sorry indeed that so few others can enjoy the proper models as they once was made by the man that created it. A loss to the collector of the models of this kind, very much indeed.
