Have to admire this. It is coming along very, very nicely.

Wonderful work and model Rayl! Love that clean & tidy workplace too.

Another shot. Used the 1 mm "Stretchy" stuff.

THANK GAWD!!!! Rigging is done, would have been less painful to have a root canal without Novocaine. Also got the floats attached and the Aileron struts installed.

Real planes had round engines and two wings ...

Again, Thanks for all of your kind comments. I don't know about the Museum Quality but; Thank You Poppy.

Very well executed, rayl.

Sky: I presume that you were asking about the inter-cylinder oil drain lines(?). These wer made from 0.050 soft solder and shrink-tubing. They were "manipulated" to fit into pre-drilled holes in the cylinder heads.

Sky; the finished product.

Sky: I reread your question and I think that this is what you are looking for. This is the male form that I used to vac-form the engine crankcase cover and layout the cooling openings.

This is JFB!!!!!! If this isn't museum quality, then nothing is!

Possibly a Sikorsky S-39, maybe a Widgeon. Would love to do a Curtiss NC-4, but the 94 in. W/S (in 1/16 scale) doesn't seem feasible. A P-82 would be fun also.

How about a Suskorsky S-38 ? It needs salt water also. :-)

NO Walrus!!! I was referring to the time it takes for a mama Walrus to bring a cub to term. Sky: the pictures are there.

Rayl, just a quick question. I looked in your previous postings and couldn't find any references to how you fabricated the front engine face and the flanges that went between the cylinders. Don C, if he decides on the Walrus, I've got the photo-documentation.

Amazing Ray! Are you really going to try a Walrus?
rayl, Comment for image # 3775210 Jan 17 07:54
Thanks for the nice comments guys:-)! The gestation period for this thing is approaching that of a Walrus!!

BRAVO!!!! JFB!!!
