    Le Rhône 9-cyl Rotary Engine

    Hi Richard,

    THANK YOU for this wonderful model! Amazing work! I will probably apply it to a Fokker E. III R/C 66" model (to 'portray' a similar Oberursel Ur. I engine), a Fokker D. VIII 55" R/C model (with the push rods facing the fire wall) and a Swedish FVM Ö1 "Tummelisa" (Tammy Thumb) biplane 52" R/C model.
    The latter two both had Le Rhône 9-cylinder engines.
    Here´s the Swedish aviator Mikael Carlsson´s beautiful Tummelisa replica, built btw 1980 and 1989:

    And here´s a detail of it´s original 20s Thulin A (licence-built Le Rhône) 80 hp engine:

    So, if it´s OK with you, I´ll print it out on a big A3 sheet (160%), divide it in two, Hi-res scan it, and print the two halves onto A3 card again. That will roughly double the scale/size. I´ll build it and see what it looks like - it´ll probably be great spinning on a brushless electrical motor, perhaps mounted on a cylindrical core of thick card, balsa or thin ply - we´ll see...

    thanks again and best regards,
    Bengt:grin:

    Hi Bengt,

    I'm glad you like it, and yes you can print it any way you like.
    Post some pictures of it when you've finished it.

    Hi, all!
    The link to this engine are apparently now dead...nothing gets you to the paperwarbirds page that originally offered the free engine down loads.
    Does anyone have the Le Rhone engine file?

    Cheers!
    Jim

    Beautiful Work Richard!

    The link's working fine now.:grin:

    Must have been a momentary glitch for some of you.

    Hi everyone,

    sorry for the dead link to Roman Seisslers site, some time ago he told me he would remove all the free downloads from his site.
    I still have to update my own homepage with a direct download for the Le Rhone.
    Please be patient.:)

    Cheers,
    Richard

    Thanks, Richard,

    It is the only one of the engine models, which cannot be downloaded from your excellent paper model page.
    It is a mystery why Roman doesn´t host some free models anymore - I am sure it would boost his sales.

    Best,
    Bengt :D

    Bengt,

    that's what I thought as well but Roman said that the free downloads on his page only atracted 'ungeziffer'. please find me a decent english translation for that word, can't think of any right now.:)

    Cheers,
    Richard

    Ungeziffer???

    Thanks, Richard!

    I looked in my big German-Swedish dictionary but alas, I couldn´t find it.
    So, I can´t give you the translation, I´m afraid. However, "Ziffer" means 'number' or 'numbers' in English. My guess is that it has either something to do with people who aren´t so willing to open their wallet and PAY for a (well-designed card) model, alternatively, people who are put off by something that they have to pay money for, when you could have it elsewhere for free.

    From a designers point of view, I can understand Roman Seissler - I researched, historically correct and detailed card model isn´t made in a coffe break.

    "Ungeziffer", anyone?
    Kannst Du vielleicht ein bisschen erklären, Roman?

    All the best,
    Bengt :D

    Thanks so very much, Richard!
    What a spectacular model...and just the thing I needed for my FG Nieuport 17. And thank you, Bengt!:wink:

    Here's how it came out at 1/72 scale...or at least it is supposed to be 1/72 scale. I fear, now that it is built and up against the firewall, it might be a tab small.
    Anyway, here's a few pictures of my build:

    So, does it look a bit too small for this airplane?

    [​IMG]

    Here's how it looks with the cowling in place...might just leave it as is at this point...

    Cheers!

    Hallo de Ouwe here.
    I am not sure but I think it means unlettered or a person that can not read more or less an A hole
