Post something with a round motor.

Extra bonus internets if you personally took the picture.

How about a scale radial engine?

Can't embed but worth the watch. It's used in R/C airplanes.


Video - sounds a lot like the big boys.

Those radial bikes look like they would be a "hot" ride.

Correct and.... Who knows. It made 672 at the wheels and never heard from the guy after he picked it up.

ETA: Video of it running before being tuned.

While the Rolls Royce / Packard Merlin is a beautiful work of art, 'tis not a radial engine.

Took these myself at an airshow earlier this year.

Note the position of the props on all aircraft. Pure luck I caught them in synchronicity.

I'll take a picture of a radial tomorrow. This is my place holder.

I have to say that Otter is just about the coolest utility plane I can imagine. If I could have one on pontoons.......Man.......

What's up with the "Memphis Belle" there? That is a B-17G, and the Memphis Belle was a B-17F. And, what's up with the cowling on the #3 being checkered? I didn't think The Belle had that on her paint job.

Just curious.

I've got pictures of the same aircraft at Imperial War Museum Duxford. It was one of the planes used to shoot some of the scenes for the Memphis Belle movie, in fact the left side of the nose has different nose art entirely.
