Amazing work Alex. The eye for the details is great.

Some really good work going on here, congratulations!

I'm a bit late to the party, with one and only comment about the Conti engine.

You did a splendid job detailling it, but the original resin part is a bit wrong.

Both cylinders lines are not exactly symetrical, there's a shift up front for the left line, so that left and right connecting rods are not facing each other. This is just starting to be noticeable in 1/48.

Keep up this very good work.

Thanks guys!

 

Antoine, you've said the right thing! Moreover, I can say cylinders are on "V" setting one each other but it's above my skill in 1:48 scale. Space available is really a tragedy....

I wouldn't have rised the subject if I haven't noticed that you really took care of the details.

Was your engine homemade? Or which brand is it?

 

Here's a topside picture.

Anyway, once everything's closed, nobody will notice this.

Antoine,

 

I've collected a lot of pictures before starting so that I've noticed this problem!

Starting point was a couple of Lycoming engines taken from two Esci Cessna C172 kit as shown at the end of page 1.

 

:bye:

Gee, you scared me, as for a second I thought you were scratch building coat hangers in 1/48...
