  1. My next project is the Airfix A6M2b Zero and I have all the correct colours for a Mitsubishi built version, courtesy of Colourcoats, but have just one small question. I've read the previous posts regarding P&W radial engine colours but can't find any similar reference/post confirming what colours would be correct for Japanese radials so can anyone help please? Regards Colin.
  2. The engine was completed but was short of bits and bobs so added some of the pieces from This is not the best PE from Eduard, the instructions are hazy in part and there aren't enough spark plug leads. The WNW instruction book is required to reduice its short comings. Having spent the best part of a day to lead wires form the two magnetos into the pipe-work and then from this piepwork to the 12 spark plugs (I hope its the magnetos and spark plugs ). Waiting for the below to harden the engine was dirtied. I've used the excellent article in 'Air Modello
  3. Well I've started my WnW kit the F2B. My apprenticeship were the previous models.... The Engine went together well except I didn't read the colours that well painting the cylinders in Alclad Aluminium and then having to paint the cylinders behind the pipe work with Warhammer copper. Having read that the parts go together and paint on the glue surfaces is enough to interfere with the fit I tried to put a dob of masking fluid on anything that requires glueing. https://www.flickr.com/photos/154341814@N05/50372078788/in/dateposted-public/. The comopleted engine looked a bit ba
  4. Hi All, This is s 3d-printed model of the historic "Curtiss Number 3" engine that powered the AEA Silver Dart, as well as several other experimental craft. It wasn't a reliable engine, but it was an important step towards the development of reliable V-type aircraft engines in the US. The surviving engine is an important artifact in Canadian aeronautical history because it powered the first flights in Canada on Feb 23rd and 24th, 1909. The surviving engine is heavily deteriorated, and there is little archival evidence for certain missing parts, so this is a recreation.
  5. Hello All, I'm new here. I hope that this is a reasonable topic for this forum. I'm working on a 3d-printable model of a classic aeroengine--basically an (intermittently) working prototype from the early history of aircraft. This is the Curtiss No. 3, which famously powered Silver Dart, Cygnet II, and various other experimental craft created of the Aerial Experiment Association (AEA) that included Alexander Graham Bell, Glenn Curtiss, and others. The engine first ran on 23 October, 1908 and was used by the AEA through at least February 1909. It was later used in a small fishin
  6. Spitfire Mk.IX Engine 1:72 Eduard If you're lucky enough to have one of Eduard's rather excellent new Spitfire Mk.IXs in glorious 1:72, you won't have failed to notice that the kit has been designed in such a way as to accommodate an engine. It should come as no surprise then, to find that Eduard themselves have released just such an item. Packed into a reasonably large box considering the size of the contents, the engine is supplied as 26 resin parts and a small fret of photo etched details. Not all of the resin parts are used though, as you get a choic
  7. Hey guys, I was wondering if anyone had any decent reference imagery/schematics to the Boultan Paul's Merlin XX engine? I was thinking if there are any decent plans I'll try model it in Autodesk with the intention of 3D printing it. Could be interesting... Failing that, I was thinking about picking up CMK's 1/72 resin Merlin XX up and kit bashing an engine mount and plumbing together. Would this be correct in a BPD? (In particular a MK 1) What do you's think? The engine in question.... Cheers! I'll record whatever I do and upload it to MURRODELS where you can also see
  8. Fw 190A-5 Engine Set & Fuselage Guns Set 1:72 Eduard Brassin These sets are both designed for the new Eduard Kit. Engine Set This set provides a complete replacement engine and cowlings for the kit. There is a sheet of photo-etch and an amazing 21 resin parts. The casting on the resin is superb, some of the best from Eduard I have seen. There is a complete engine, mounting brackets and separate cowlings to be displayed of the model. A new resin front cowl, gear box and all new resin exhaust are included for the engine, and a new firewall for the airframe. The photo-etch fret provid
  9. Iron Maiden's (chartered, I think) 747 suffered some damage on the ground this week; http://www.walesonline.co.uk/news/wales-news/iron-maidens-ed-force-one-11030798 looking at it, it looks to me as if the engine will need a complete new cowling and maybe a new engine, if any part of it has been damaged in the incident. Any ideas out there as to the possible time it might take to repair the engine (and undercarriage, if the story is right) and of course the cost of a new cowling and/or engine, or engine repairs? I couldn't see the R R logo on the cowling, so I am assuming it is an American
  10. Resin WWI Engines 1:72 & 1:48 Small Stuff Models Small Stuff are a new company to me, at the moment they produce a range of WWI rotary and in-line engines in 1:72 and 1:48 scales. Looking at their website it seems they may be branching out into other scales and other eras. The engines are small models in their own right. There is a central hub to which all the cylinders attach. For each cylinder you then have to attach spark plugs, intake tubes, valve rockers & levers, and push rods. Some of these parts are small and to help with the smallest parts a special applicator is incl
  11. I mean only aluminiums engines..... I was using for engine 15years old humbroll paint aluminum no.56. but I spent it whole. I bought new one but this paint is sometimes matt and sometimes glossy so I cant use this paint. I have also revell and vallejo aluminum but I don’t like them too. :-( So What is your paint for engine?

  16. I have just finished the ICM Merlin, for my Mk IX (don't tell me its a poor example - seen that in other posts) - I can live with it). Now I have looked at a tone of pics and I read somewhere that Edgar mentioned something about grey ext, However I have the 1/32 book by Brett Green and Co on the Tamiya Spitfire and there the Engine seem to be solid black except for exhausts and top covers. I have been told that in service, an engine is just a big black block. Its primed and ready for a dash of colour or not. Thoughts please.

  19. Does anyone have any good photos of the Spey burner can's for the British Phantoms? I'm specifically looking for any good photos that show the actuator assemblies inside the exhaust area. Thanks David
