Title: Real Engines
Post by thymekiller on Apr 25th, 2014 at 12:01pm
Here is a link to my Photobucket page of engines.  Having trouble posting them all. Gonna have to do a better job of sorting and posting..... ::)

I hope these pics help when you detail that model motor.

Just came across this thread, good photos and I can see them being very useful, be even better If I could work out which engines they were
Any chance of some ID labels on those photos?

The plaques tell what engine is which!  The only ones you might have trouble with is the LeRhone (1st rotary) the Clerget is the 2nd rotary.  The other two are the inline Beardmore and Merlin V-12.  I believe!  Correct me if I'm wrong!

Great pics Tom!  What we really need are clear, hi-res  dead-on shots - preferably without the prop - of as many radials as possible.  Seems that all "factory" shots are oblique (from a photogenic standpoint "proper") which make our lives miserable ::).

Excellent pics Tom!! Thanks for sharing them. A person could print hose and use in the nose. Very cool.

Great photos, I am looking for good views of an OX-5 for a Jenny JN-4, but those will be useful for my next two projects!
