    Nicely done..!
    I think you could scrape the top side of the blades down if you want it to unload better. This material scrapes / shaves pretty easily.

    That's a great write up and quite a story. What's amazing to me is that 1940 really isn't that long ago and they were still flying planes [military no less] as archaic as these..! The world's...

    Wow..! I would have expected better mileage..!
    It's a reminder that an airplane engine is [for the most part] under a higher load than a car engine. Even a 400 HP car engine can get 10 mpg if it is...

    That .051 will be at the heart of some interesting projects..!
    It's nice to be able to do away with the beam mounts for certain types of planes.

    Those are spectacular photos..!
    The shot of what looks like a mine in the background really shows what a scenic area that is. I'd be spending lots of time in your plane cruising and cruising and...

    It sure is nice not to deal with bladders unless you really see no better solution.
    They have many faults, but one of the worst is they can't ramp up fuel delivery based on demand like crankcase...

    It sounds very happy with that prop..!
    I'll bet it will top 80 mph on a good day and that's about 2000 scale MPH for such a tiny plane.

    The clarity of those photos is the first thing that struck me. That's quite a collection..! There is a similar collection of planes at our small town airport. Paul Allen keeps some war birds up here.
