      We continue rolling with the engine block, some painting and some parts added....
      After this stage, an engine stand becomes a must...
      So there we go designing & building one ...I'm going to see if I can find a Curtiss stand pic to model mine...
      The propeller gearbox housing was added with a scale drain plug in it, and some scale nuts as per data...also the block's oil filling spouts were given a wire touch to simulate the fast opening latch....the "V" intake manifold and its attaching bolts & nipples are in place, and the bolting feet were drilled to allow for scale bolting upon the engine bearers ............hmmmmmmmmmmmm...

      See ya

    Gosh Mario - I thought we would have to go to 1/8th to make any detail worth while. I forgot you had all those micro mechanics on your payroll.
