Default Mills 1.3cc diesel - Plans by Ron Chernich from Model Engine Builder magazine

Hello, thought I would share with you the progress of the model diesel engine I am building from the article and plans of Ron Chernich (Australia) he published in issue 1 of Model Engine Builder magazine. I started in January this year. My progress depends on the time I can get in the workshop and how fit I am (excuses I know!) The build is documented on my website (along with all the other projects I have done this year) http://www.mikes-models.com I hope the photo's load as this is my first time.....


about to start turning the front taper.....



Where I have got to at the moment........



Made 2 fuel tanks and tops. One for a reader of my website and the other for mine.



Turning the radius on the end using the method described by Ron Chernich



Where I am now and I have jsut started to make the crankshaft.......more to follow......

And here they are......getting on with the crankshaft and the prop nut.....


the two phosphur bronze bushes trial fitted to crankshaft blank..

the prop nut....

why do we always trial fit to see what its going to look like when finished! (well at least I do......)


Ron Chernich, the designer of this engine says it will swing a 12" wooden prop.......well it looks big to me!

Sorry about the photo's. I found the page where it suggested using Photo Bucket. Seems to have worked. So every day we learn a little more...........

All clear to me Mike I think I just clicked on it as you updated the photo's

Nice looking engine you got going there.... I've never seen a model diesel engine, it will be nice to see/hear one running

Top quality work and photos Mike, an old friend of mine had a Britton Norman Islander RC aircraft running on a pair of these, everyone stopped what they were doing when it started.

Thanks. I have been told these engines are very flexible and it will (not necessarily mine though!) drive a 12" wooden prop. Look forward to it breathing...........

12"??Wow,that's a BIG prop
Looks like a nice engine,Mike.I've owned a couple of diesels in my time(DC,Philtech),but could never get along with them.Please post a video of it running if you can,once you finish it.
They do sound lovely when running well.

And don't flood it when trying to start it, cos if it's like its' little brother, the 75, it backfires and starts backwards! been,seen,done,video,T-shirt, etc.
