Three cylinder radial...


DC,

If you can make a casting kit you could probably make one of these. They don't require any castings and are very straightforward and easy to machine. Check the link to the pip and the puck...

Great Links


THANKS TO ALL FOR THE GREAT LINKS

I know of all these engine casting kits. They are quite nice projects indeed. I was hoping to find any interesting engines or casting kits within the membership here. I know that many people in this group are diversified folks, and may have something unusual to add to my collection. I own the foundry that casts' the engines in the link I have below. The blown V-8 is very impressive when running, and they always draw a big crowd at shows.

Well I'll be darned! A celebrity!

I have admired those engines for a long time myself. Has anyone actually put one into a working r/c car or boat?

Hello Kmot,

No, Not a celebrity by any means! Yes, the engines are being put into running vehicles. We are building 1/3 rd scale cars as we speak. I know of a few engines in europe that are being built for racing boats. These projects take a considerable amount of time and effort. I hope someday, when time allows to build a multi engine project with the V-8's. If you, or anyone local is interested we have a bay area club of model engineers. The club is B.A.E.M., and has a great group of members similar to this site. Many of them RC ers also of course. We show the engines at Good Guys west coast nationals every year, and other museums and such. Any one interested in model engineering can look for local shows and exhibits. I assure you that you will not be dissappointed by attending. The shows are great, and have some unbelievable craftsmanship.

THANKS MCJUSTIS,


Yes, these little engines are very sweet, and make great first projects for anyone interested in making engines. I wish I could build them all! Building engines is much like building airplanes. You understand the appreciation one holds for anything after constructing it, and seeing it perform well. A feeling, and sense of satisfaction not realized by many other hobbies. We are lucky individuals to have such a rewarding hobby! I have Many great life long friends thanks to aeromodeling.




THANKS DCFLYSRC
