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!

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 Roll Eyes.

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!

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?

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