After seeing some of the recent builds on Rudy's radial, I was inspired to make one myself.
However, I wanted it to look a little more like the real thing. So I modeled it up and started adding the details to make it
look more prototypical.

Time it start making chips!


Love the look!!

Thanks Chris.

Yeah, his design was a little too plain. I think this will wake it up.
I don't know when I will actually start on it. Maybe a piece here and there.
I've got too many paying projects in line right now.

I've build the ubiquitous five cylinder wobbler radial too.

I see these as a build up to a "real" five or nine cylinder radial. Definitely on my bucket list in retirement. 


Your design looks really good, Sid. The exhaust stubs are a great touch, I wish I'd thought of that!

If I had planned the touches I added to mine from the start, I too would have put the pushrod tubes at the front. Mine are a little bit hidden at the back, but it was the easier way to incorporate what was more or less an afterthought.

sid pileski:
I also added a bunch more fasteners. Again to make it look more proto.
Going to have to be patient doing all those 2-56's!
