What Engine @

Hi Dag:

What engine are you replicating ? I can't recall a double row 12 cylinder.

LOL.... I have been waiting for someone to chime in. Its the DAG D-950 Cyclone-12. Since the EII is 100% made up, why not my Radial. Oh.. it 950HP

Why Not ????

Hi Dag:

Why not ? As radical as she is she should have her own engine design.

Thanks,

Tom

At the risk of being labeled a smarta$$, I thought radials all had an odd number of cyls per row. Unless of course, it's a two stroke.

I for one am very disappointed. Come on Dag, you had, what, a whole weekend? I would have expected you to research, design, refine the ore, pour molds, machine, and assemble a working double-row radial. You're slipping man! Un-subscribe...

Well I did!

Just had the timing backwards and it ran like a Russian engine. So I threw it away.

Only in the mind of Dag!! I doubt anyone else could pull this one off so well and quick. Sort of like Oceans 11 or something like that.

A day or two off and Dag's wit comes to the forefront of his building.

This is an awesome looking plane, so a radial is what will set it off and make it a cut above the rest.

You are amazing Dag.

Hey Steve- some of us have a life beyond the keyboard .

I was in the basement killing balsa before I spotted the post, but I couldn't let it pass when I saw it this morning. I post in the open just to throw sand in the bearings, I am 77 what else am I going to do ?.

Well it was about 1:30AM, so down time....

And I was trying to be polite, but then Dag told me he did it on purpose to see how many people would catch it.....
