Believe me or not, but this element took me two weeks! I regret to say, it is far from my expectation  :-\ . I'm not going to do this once again - I tried seven times, "killed" all my bits and need to wait for new ones about two weeks. So it must stay as it is for this time. I'll try to correct it just a little, but I need to make "check point" (cast of this element). It's my horror - cylinder's head...




And bolt for cylinders attaching (this is not bad):


I'm getting older... when I had been preparing Oberursel UrII in 1:48 I had only knife and needles. Now I have really nice equipment and still something goes wrong. Maybe it's time for glasses  ;D

All the best, Lukasz

Maybe you are just too self critical Lucasz, you do things most of us can only dream of.

And test fitting. It works!
Do not look at the cast quality - I demolded it too early and damaged ribs. But it fits! Now I can correct and finish cylinder's head.





THANK YOU FOR ALL GOOD WORDS!!!!!!!!!!!!

All the best, Lukasz

By the way - I'm working on pulsometer, think will be ready soon :)

I recovered my work!!!!

Let imagine: during final casting of FINISHED cylinder's head I missed silicon oil with cyanoacrylate glue!!! It was in the same cups :/ it was disaster...
I waited a week, and try to recover my work. It's not perfect, but acceptable. Below you can see test assembly of cylinder






It was a real fight, rest should be a piece of cake :)

That is absolutely awesome Lukasz, it is as close to the real thing as you could possibly get, looking forward to seeing the completed engine.

Bertl - you realise that you are now going to have to drill the end of the bolt through the castellated nut and fit a split pin  ;)
