Bentley Br2 1:32
« on: October 04, 2014, 09:25:33 PM »
Last time I had really lot of work. But hope, I menaged, and find some time for modelling :)

I started Bentley Br2. My friend Simon helped me with documentation. I have photos of each screw, each washer in this engine. From this reason, I have the only objective: ANY COMPROMISES!!! Each screw will be reproduced with any simplification. It could be really difficult, but I'll try.
This engine will be done as a separate and complete model with a stand for exposition.

A few pictures of my work. This will be a build log, I'll suplement this with a new pix.

The cylinders base:





First attempt to crankcase:




The ready crankcase








If you see any mistakes, inaccuracies - let me know, please - I'll correct it.

Thanks for watching, Lukasz

Thanks for taking the time to document the development process for this engine. I am fascinated by your attention to detail, and ability to bring that to resin castings. Outstanding.

This means I will have to go ahead with that WnW Sopwith Snipe kit in anticipation of this engine. I think it calls for a simple diorama scene in which the cowling has been removed, or the engine itself has been dismounted for maintenance or repair.

I'm looking forward to more. Well done!

Tomorrow I start "fighting" with cyllinders head. It's the most problematic part in this engine in my oppinion. But I'll try...
Today, for resting, I tried to fit propeller mount - it works!!!! I easily assembled it:



Thanks a lot, Lukasz

Lucasz

So I looked at the first few images and thought "Yes that's nice and well done" Then I saw the ones held in your fingers and realised just how intricate it is. Once I picked my jaw up off the keyboard I managed to type "Incredible!" So then say the prop boss assembled and now my chin is bruised twice!  ;) ;D

It's so very nice - thank you so much for sharing some insights into the development of such a tiny resin accessory.
