Naugahyde hit the market in '29, since this one was built in '30 it could have been used, but the blue just doesn't seem right. All old pics are black and white. Any suggestions?

Thanks gentlemen. I'm glad I didn't try a "Double Wasp" the first time.

That looks heavy duty. The blue and gray really makes it look "metallic".

Well done.

Done. !/16 scale, 2 5/8 inches. Since it's covered by a cowl, I decided to forgo the exhaust as no one will see the backside anyway.

Nice!

Connected. Waiting for glue to dry.

Installed spark plugs and wires

Oh Don; don't we know how to have fun? I'll catch up my posts later.

Still going. R to L: Motor mount from photos, crankcase accordingto plan,cylinders from Dare motor, intake from Dare motor kit. Should produce a reasonable facsimile of a P&W Wasp Jr. Fortunately it's mostly hidden by the cowl.

Now that's a great Nature shot!

thanks don, I think that did it!

To finish that thought - catches on the tab. You may have to adjust the tab for it to work.

Thank you Don! Off to search eBay for one :)

Even I could learn from you Don C. Thank you. I was going to purchase a soldering iron for my next project. Might just go this route.
Don C, Comment for image # 3703626 Oct 16 15:25
I think the Anson would be a good one to try this on.

Don, great idea on the use of the toy motorcycle for the wheels. I'll have to remember that for future reference. The model is turning out great.

That's a hard decision. I know exactly your situation. I've found that if I used proportion, it helps. The Guillow's PT-17 and now the S.E. 5 cockpit interiors were both detailed using the proportion method. It's a ratio and balance between what space is available on the model and what detailing can be used to good effect. Sometimes it means stretching the boundaries of imagination. Very good work on the model!!

Great work Don! Nice attention to the details. Did you obtain the cockpit interior photos from the museum, or did you take them yourself? Great shots, by the way. Anders, try using flux when soldering. This is a special solution that is used when soldering. Most people who are starting soldering are not aware of it. Many solders, also come with flux inside.
