:shock: Wow Tim. Those are both great builds. I especially like the neatness of the seams and the cool display stand. Excellent work.

thanks for making the original engine, I think the size you made it is perfect.I have liked this version of the continental as have some of the
guys who fly 'em. I recently made one with the shorter tail segment of fuse as well for a guy who's presently resoring one, frame up with new wood wings. If anyone else wants the motor to put on their N2S or pt13
I can email the file ( send me a pm with email) by the way my mailplane is pretty much done and my s-38 close

Birder:

I dont know if you realized this, but Chip already has a version of that engine up on his site, under "budding designers". Anyone can download it here:

Great job on the Natter, and that's an awesome Stearman.

Beautiful builds Tim. I like the Stearman, you made my repaint look a lot better than it is. The Natter is also brilliant, nice subject for a model and that stand is different, nice! :D :D :D

Thanks. One minor thing, Nikki is the girls spelling (double K). I'm a 22 year old guy, my 'proper' name is Nicholas but I prefer Niki. I couldn't spell properly when growing up so my name ended up being NIKI rather than the usual NICKY.

Thanks

Niki

Niki, I'm not too good at names, or spelling, but will attempt to improve. I have heard some variations on names in South Africa, so didn't think too much about it, glenV

By the way, if anyone was trying to print the engine link above it works fine, but I printed one to build and it is about 15% too small for the versions, I printed out Niki's above version

Right. I printed mine at 120%, or 20 percent larger. I was just looking at the engine , and comparting that to pictures using the old mark I eyeball, so 15 percent may well be closer to the mark

I'm not sure, but I believe a version of that engine to scale of the Stearman is included in the bits folder. It was the one we were going to include until Chip decided to go with a simpler version, so I just did a cut 'n paste into a new file.

Don't quote me on it though.

Tim, I think your size estimate is right on, the 15% is also an estimate, however looking at the two in comparison, I think yours looks right. Murphyaa, thanks I'm not exactly sure where that file is, will look for that one too. Further if you want to make the Stearman slightly more accurately, the tail section of the fuse can be shortened to the vertical stabilizer on the top. This rotates the tail section upward or straight and eliminates a slight droop there. I also did not include the fuse move handles which are located just posterior to the rear line of the fuse stripe low on the fuse. I just made one of these for my Dad and he loves it, very colorful in Niki's paint scheme

Ive been working on a Flettner 282 Humingbird on and off for two or three weeks now. I finaly managed to finish it up today. It had a fair amount of fiddly bits like the open basket style cockpit. I rather made a mess of that; I couldnt find a nice sharpie or other felt pen that matched the colour of the fusalage, and there was rather alot of white to cover up once I cut out the birdcage-like front. Also, I made rather a hash out of the pilots seat. But it doesnt look bad as long as you dont look too close.
