Soo...

What is a good starter aster engine that is alcohol fired(coal if it was cheaper) and has a blower to get it going. I was at diamondhead and this caught my interest as I am use to butane firing (2 engines).

I know its more of a pain but Its all part of the fun to me. So far it looks like the lion is the cheapest route to go in this area. Too bad that Aster Sterling Single is too much for my pocketbook lol (the one that was very fast at Diamondhead this year)

Even a good used one (if I knew where to look) would be ok.

Basically the ruby of aster (that uses a blower to get up to steam, I want that operation)

Im looking for all around, SG or NG is not a prob. Im going for the operation, not the looks hehe.
I was thinking ruby wise as in the beginner alcohol fired loco with a blower. I know the asters are around $2000 or less starting I think. I just liked how the asters had all the valves and the blower setup.

Want to start saving for something lol.
