« on: December 12, 2018, 07:38:34 PM »
Hi All,

Not the best of plans, but finally got this project finished. Yogi added his expertise to get this thing to work ! Came out good in the end.  :)

Thanks for the visit !

Looks great. I have 3 of them. It's one of my favorite air engines.

This one was a challenge. Should have made more changes from drawings than I did from the start, but came out in the end. Live and learn !  :)

Appreciate all the comments !

Fantastic runner and finish  :praise2: .... though I could have sworn it is a Rotary and not a Radial engine  :old:

As always Brian, beautiful finish and performance! You still need to make an IC engine. Let me know when you're ready and I'll be glad to help out.

Scott Labombard from Flushing Michigan. He used to come to the names show but I have not seen him in about 5 years.

Internet search brings up the only Scott in Flushing Says age 53 which is about right.

Try (810) 487-0215

Wife Amy has a facebook page but you need to log on to contact. I am not a facebook member.

I have a snail mail address if all else fails.

I wouldn't mind seeing a different set of plans myself. If anyone finds out about Scott's plans please post. You don't want the plans I have.  :insane:
