    wow!
    i'm really going to enjoy the 1:11 scale engine...the 1:33 scale is still a bit tricky for me.
    thank you very much!

    Clerget 7-cylinder Rotary Engine Models

    Hi Richard,

    Those are beautiful models! Thanks for providing them for download.
    Do you think you could also provide a 9-cylinder rotary engine on your web page? Preferrably in two scales, like the 7-cylinder Clerget.

    I would like a Le Rhône, Gnome, Göbel or Oberursel type for my Fokker models . . .

    with best regards,
    Bengt

    Hi Richard,

    Thanks for letting me (and everybody else) know about your plans. I´m sure it will be worth the wait.

    best regards,

    Gnôme Monosoupape Rotary Engine Kit

    Hi Ray,

    Thanks for that link - it is an interesting page.
    The Gnôme is of the early single valve 9-cyl type (monosoupape), which was used in England in the De Havilland D.H.2 aeroplane, among others.
    A similar engine (a Gnôme copy), also with the push rods facing the front/propeller, was the Oberursel Ur. I, which was fitted to the early Fokker 'Eindeckers'.

    The one I´m looking for is the slightly larger Oberursel Ur. II, Le Rhône or Goebel Goe 110 hp type, with the push rods facing the fire wall (away from the propeller). This type was fitted to the later WW I Fokkers, such as the Dr. I and the D.VIII.

    best,
    Bengt:grin:
