I'm considering this done for now. I was going to add exhaust pipes, but I kind of like the look and sound as is. I'll have to think about it some more. Also thinking about putting together plans for it.

Hi Chuck, I would be very great-full if you put together a set of plans.

I would love to build your engine, and I'm sure others would too!

Wow! That made some sounds like the real deal on start up for a second or two. Beautiful sound. Oh, and Chuck, you forgot to yell "CLEAR!!!" before throwing the juice to it. :big:

Chuck, that is a beautifully built-and-sounding engine :bow: :bow: - and it makes my hands itch to try it for my first multi-cylinder engine!
I've read your build log on it - a couple of times over already - and I must say this is a truly inspirational build. I love the elegant simplicity of your design, and especially your "slave exhaust valves" - BRILLIANT!

Plans would be nice, but your engine is so good I'd even attempt to try to imitate it without plans. :-[ Do you mind taking a photo of it with a rule next to the block for scale though ?

Kind regards, Arnold

It's a beautiful engine, but it's the sound that really gets me.

Great looking and sounding engine Chuck!

I really like the lightening holes in the stand, it really adds to the aircraft theme.

I had the privilege of seeing this one in person tonight. It sounds even better in person. Sign me up for plans too.
