Doesn't need it with the extension, but I may make another motor that is "hollow" enough to house the gear (thus precluding use of the extension)..... still figgerin'. No need to make a motor for me, Pete, as I have this one figured out - thanks!

I'll show you a picture of my Voss DR-I as I just put the extension shaft on mine.
Great -- I'll be looking in your Voss thread .

BTW did you see in the 1:24 scale paper build I sent the metalic paper the builder used?
Unfortunately, that paper's no longer available (for those interested in an amazing paper over-the-top D.VIII build, see here).

What glue did you use at first when making the cylinders? Where did you get your card paper?
I used Elmer's Rubber Cement to form them, then Por to attach them to the hub. The card stock came from my old paper model stash - I think I got it at Office Depot.[/QUOTE]

Making the engine has been a neat excursion for me, just like making the cowl. I may even make some real progress on the airframe next week.
