Waking up from hibernation – new engine
« on: August 21, 2022, 07:13:04 AM »
Finally, TaurusModels has woken up from the long hibernation. And with great pleasure, I present you a new engine: Gnome Lambda, which can be used in WNWs Sopwith Pup. Just see the pictures below. I hope, you will enjoy :)

















All the best, Lukasz

It's even better in the flesh Steve. This is Lukasz's best engine yet! Regards, Pete in RI

Incredible work. A masterpiece.

Too bad I don't have a suitable model for it on the shelf.

...... are my eyes deceiving me or are there actually closed AND open valves in the cylinder heads?

You have Bertl :)
Just wait for a little, I'm working on a slight modification, to Oberursel U0.


All the best, Lukasz

I thought we'd agreed the use of shrink rays and/or overscale props (ie giant matchsticks) was not allowed on this forum? ;D Lukasz, that is a beautiful piece! WOW!

Hi Lukasz

I recieved the engine in the post a couple of days ago. Can you please send me some replacement eyes and fingers (shake proof) as i'm going to need them.  ;D This engine is unbelievable and as a professional guitar maker I must say the propeller is the bees knees. This model will need some care. Any chance of it in 1/48  ;D only joking but would it be worthwile ressurecting your 1/48 scale range, they were really nice.
Cheers
Andrew

Just got mine in the mail today. Unbelievable kit! I think it would be a waste to put it in the WnW Sopwith Pup because it would hardly be visible. Maybe the CSM Caudron GIII?
But it will be a while before I can muster up the courage to build it!

  :D :D :D Every time I pop in the first picture with the matchstick or the penny I feel frustation but also a great admiration and respect for the author's skills. I have two of your amazing engines still buried, untouched in their boxes and even don't knowing when I'm going to build them I always crave for all of your new wonders.
