i would like be in the teambuild. i have to say though i have only limited tools to make parts. im just a beginner in model engine building. i can make simple parts though, or supply round stock for crankshaft and such. so maybe a easier engine would be better, up to you all to decide. ask me anything bout what i could make.

Any other ideas on what to build? Engines mentioned so far are Rudys radial 5 although a three cylinder
seems favored, Elmers #11, Chuck Fellows radial ( no plans so far, but maybe if we beg). There is also a
potty 3 cyl. in the downloads section. As these engines have considerably more parts then previous
team builds, a few more team members may be necessary. Following Tin Falcons post, this may be slightly
ahead of sequence but is something to think about.

Regards,
Mike

I've thought about this a bit and I think for a team build you would want drawings that are tried and true, especially for something as complicated as a radial. Keep in mind that I've only built the one engine and I kind of made it up as I went along. I'm not a draftsman and I would be making the drawings from the completed engine. While any drawings I provide might be OK for a single person building the engine, I would not recommend trying a team build from them.

Thx for the consideration...
Chuck

Chuck, if you do make the plans available, I for one would be interested, I really liked the original version with the push rods and all.

Hi

If you are short-handed and need another player I would be happy to join up! I've participated in three team build here,
one worked great, one took ages to get the parts done and out to the team (and I still haven't got that one running...)
and one the IC build that petered out... (I've got 16 mostly complete governor assy's for Kerzel hit&miss engines..
that could keep me building for a long time!). Being an eternal optimist, I'm ready to go again.

Cheers, Joe

Chrispare,

I finally found the plans for the Potty Three Cylinder Radial, by Stewart Hart.

Looks good and there is one being built by TuxMan at
http://www.homemodelenginemachinist....7433#msg147433
so we can follow along as we build.

So I vote for this one. However, the others look good also.

The plans are in Metric ... so do we convert? If so maybe we can find those plans
or I will consider converting (if there is a checker) in Solidworks.

Other considerations?

Pat H.
