Bertl, not only are you building something quite extraordinary but your explanations as to what each part is is very educational.  I am utterly hopeless when it comes to engines .. I have the basic knowledge of how they work (suck, squeeze, bang, blow) but that's it!  

 

Thank you for making things clearer for me.

 

One thing though .. in one of your photos (this one) you are using some sort of brass rod/tube template or cutting gauge,

Where did this come from?? .. can you remember?? it seems to be a very useful tool for the tool box.

 

Thanks,

Hello Guy,

 

this is the Mercedes D.III / D.IIIa-sprue from Wingnut Wings, part No. 132E0005.

This will be a stand-alone model............................................except I screw up the paint, then I hide the motor in a Roland D.VI with closed cowling Panels  -_-

Hi Grant,

yes, I can remember :D

this cutting board is a selfmade - tool.

 

Drawn in AutoCAD and milled on the CNC machine.

The material is GRP (also known as GFK or FR4) .

This material is extremely hard, PC boards are made ​​of the same material.

 

With a hobby knife or similar cutting tool, it can not be damaged.

Some lines are milled to cut plastic rods or brass tubes on this cutting plate.

Small pins (Diameter 1mm) serve as a stop.

You can cut plastic-rod and thin brass tubes with a sharp blade.
Thicker brass tubes or aluminum tubes can be cut very well with a resin saw.

Please note, this board is not a thing of Magic !!, --- but It works quite well for me.

 

The downside is, it is a little bit expensive to produce, - because the material and the miling time from the CNC-maschine are a bit expensive.

 

Unfortunately I have none more at home.

Hi Michael,

I have seen this engine stand somewhere on the web - possibly on the webside of Wingnut Wings - but I'm not sure.

This little thing is made ​​very simple from a handful of matches.
A little bit oil paint over it - done.
