    I tend to agree with Lakc, it is certainly good news. We all eagerly await other great news such as this.
    Maybe with a bit of luck those documents, maybe intact, who knows?
    We all wish you the best in the search. :)

    I have Profi water cooled 4 and air cooled V8.

    From my www.coolmodelengines.com

    "Eric whittle 10cc V8 Aero engine series in Model Engineer, April 1995,
    download article with plans as 14 pd f's, patience required"

    the link did not work.
    I will look in my archive for the pdf files.

    You might want to contact this company in New Zealand:
    http://thevintageaviator.co.nz/
    They don't do models, they do the actual aircraft. Their scratch built D5 Albatross is incredible as are their Fokker DVIII and DVII.
    PBS was so impressed they did a Nova episode entitled First Air War. You can see it on Youtube:

    They have collected many of the original blueprints of the aircraft and engines and offer a complete Uberussel engine for other builder/restorers. They have at least two original Mercedes D3 engines flying the Albatross and the DVII.
    Don't know if they have any links to modelers but it can't hurt to ask.
    Good luck,

    Rick

    Both of the construction articles for the two Cirrus engines are available through Strictly IC magazine. Eric Whittle wrote the one for the smaller version and I wrote the one for the quarter scale model. They can both be seen running on ronsmodelengines on YouTube.

    Hi,
    Just wondering if anything eventuated from this gentleman's amazing work? I would be very interested to see what he achieved and where he obtained his information from. I have contacted Mercedes directly, but they do not and will not release their aero engine plans to anybody. And I know from experience that guides at museums give you a very funny look when you ask to dismantle one of their engines for measurements! :( It would be a terrible shame if all of his work was trashed by his relatives. Something for all of us to contemplate.
    Any information would be appreciated.
    Cheers,
    Les

    Would you know what issues of Strictly IC these engines were in? I lost my entire collection of the magazine in a move. I would like to buy some of the back issues but just specific ones for projects.

    Hi Teus, you may post this question om Modelbouwforum. Or maybe the organiser of the show ( Stoom en techniekdag in Wijchen, by the looks of it) has still records of the participants of the show back then.

    Hello Jos,

    I tried years ago because a friend of my was very interested to build this engine but with no succes, for me this engine is out of my league...... Modelbouwforum is a NoGo for me.

    Great. Thanks for the link. When I add up all the issues for the 1/4 and 1/6 scale Cirrus, and then1/4 and 1/6 scale Kinner, its a good portion of the total issues of the entire magazine. Maybe I should just get a bank loan and buy them all. There are 84 issues at $8.00 each. Guess it will have to be a big bank loan.

    Maybe someone who has done some SIC builds can better comment but another thing I noticed was what Robert called 'errata' several issues after the main feature build plans/instructions were published. Sometimes it was drafting errors or issues other pointed out as they machined parts. I'm not sure if the SIC index necessarily encapsulates these sorts of amendments tucked in the back of an issue vs. the main build article.

    Some of the plans I drew up from published plans ivolved a bit of head scratching now & again. Nothing outside the model engineering norm, but just trying to give you a sense the plans may or may not be 100% vetted, ready-to-machine so to speak. They were done in a different era of drafting & lets face it, was a labor of love for what are mechanically complicated things.
