I was thinking the same thing. His is 7/8 ths ? scale. I know there are pictures of it at Oshkosh EAA fly-in.
I just can't pin down the year. About 15 years ago.

willey knows I like to go to swap meets...
I have a lot of some day I would like to... Projects.
And I'm always buying because the price was right!
Sorry willey, but with my first search through the top of my pile of dummy engines
I haven't found any Le Rhone engines.
But I think I have a display model in Pittsburgh. I'll check the next time I'm back home.

This is the dummy as it was in my Hanger 9 Korean War Hero.
A few years ago I had a bad landing with the aid of a heavy cross wind gust.
And it is one of the rebuild/upgrade projects that is on my bench.
I'm looking to add some detail, not crazy fine stuff.
Probably paint the crank case and push rods.
As with this photo, it is very dark in the cowl.
The photo is from http://www.airic.ca/html/koreanwarhero.html

I'm just looking to add "Fly By Scale Details". The things that might be seen as it Flys By.

Well guys, here is the un-finished Williams Brothers Radial I built for my Byron Staggerwing, the color will NOT be the yellow you see, planning a maroon & black scheme.

On my Sopwith Snipe, due to the exceptionally short nose, I had to fit a ton of stuff into a very small space. No only was there almost no depth available for a dummy, but I also had to pack an obscene amount of weight into the farthest forward position, to get it to balance correctly.

So the only possibility was to use a "photo dummy." I started by contacted the British Imperial War Museum where I was able to get a high-res image of the actual Bentley BRII rotary used in the Snipe. The problem was that the photo was of a display engine where one of the cylinders had been cut open. (I hate it when they do that.) So I had to photoshop out that problem. Then I decided I wanted to add some depth to the photo illusion, so I made a metal crankcase out of the bottom of a spray paint can and added the rocker rods. The photo (which was clear coated) was mounted on a sheet of 1/16" ply and this was in turn mounted on a 1/4" thick lead plate that I created by melting fishing weights in a pan. As you can see the total dummy weighed in at a hefty...and necessary...half kilo!

I also created a image that represents what the rotary would look like in flight, but decided to go with the still image.

Here's a straight-on photograph of a later model LeRhone (Model C?) that I took at a transportation museum in Tokyo. I figured it might come in useful at some point. A couple of summers ago I was at a scale fly-in in California and I saw what looked like a familiar image on one of the N-28's there. I talked to the owner and sure enough he had seen this on RCU, downloaded it, and used it on his model! Cool!!!

This is my attempt of recreating the Oberursel engine for my Fokker E.III in 1/4 scale. The cylinders are from WB and the casing is made of wood, added a few screws and painted it with humbrol paints. Also changed the styrene rods for steel ones because the WB styrene rods will break to fast due to vibration and/or hangar rush. Still not completely finished because I am waiting for my engine so I can fit it to the model over the engine. Probably need to cut some away also []
