Engine Cylinder Scale Details

Where can I find detail parts for Continental 65 HP engines like the J-3 and other taildraggers have?

A simple Google Image search provided this: http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&s...mg.VxxLyKOX8rk

These will help if you decide to build your own, or add detail to a kit version.

Top Notch has kits for these engines. http://www.topnotchkits.com/index_files/TN_Kit11.htm

Thanks. My Google search gave the same results. I need a straight shot at the side of a J-3 engine. All the images I find are at an angle. With a stright-on shot and a little touch up I can print what I need on balsa for a 23" wingspan plane.

I'm also considering buying a 1/48" scale plastic kit and robbing the parts.
