BMW 801 Radial Engine (Eduard 1/32)


Recommended Posts

Greetings. I'm not sure I chose the right forum section, but the topic in general is aviation.
I am not indifferent to radial piston aircraft engines, and although my favorite scale is 1/72, I wanted to have the engine in a larger size, well detailed, and this is exactly what the work in question is about. Resin engine from Eduard, designed for Revell's 1/32 scale Fw-190. Quite worthy to be a separate model. The quality of the set is 4+; if you make it a separate model, you would like to improve some aspects. The etched spark plug wires had to be completely replaced with wire, and at the same time the distribution ring-ramp had to be redone. Pushers made of metal tubes, and much more. But for the most part the kit is excellent, the resin just needs cleaning up in a lot of places. Metallic paint by Tamiya LP and Alclad, Mr.Color, hand painted mostly by Vallejo.

Great idea and presentation๐Ÿ‘

Maybe got me thinking I should consider this approach with a few of the model projects in my stash.

Seems a better return on all the creative effort, when normally it would be mostly hidden away.

This is simply excellent! ย A very inspiring suggestion to make better use of model accessories. A machine gun next?
