Hey I have built a three cylinder radial recently so I will be following with interest also!

Are your valve chambers made from brass or bronze?

Thanks for sharing :).

Like it. I always wanted to buy the Saito 450 3 cylinder radial. One of the only times
my wife vetoed that desire. I bought 1/3 of it as the Saito 150 . Still want the 450.
I will be following, wish you success.

What is the reason you chose brass for the valve chambers? I ask because I am building a side valve inline four with the same design and material thinking it seemed like a good material for a model engine without any idea if it would really be suitable. I would love to know your thoughts on this.
Thank you, Sam.

Wow these are very nice parts, the master and link rods look very much like production parts! What grade of aluminium are these? Also thank you for your reply about the valve chambers, this makes me feel more comfortable with my choice of brass for mine.
