Should be right next to your avatar in the header of the forum.

Which was apparently hidden in a collapsible header.  Awesome.  Now that I've thoroughly humiliated myself can we go back to talking about airplanes?

Sure. Aeroplanes consist of many parts.

Some small, some not so small. Some are visible, some are not. One should consider an aeroplane a whole made from parts.



Like a chain.














Which consists of visible and invisible links.

So I may have just quoted your post looking for invisible links.  :facepalm:

it's a flat 6!

Carl, the photo of the 14-19-2 230 Cruisemaster's engine looks kind of flat.

Why, so it is! 

I remember hearing a Cessna take off and realizing it was the same sound as the flat four in my old bug.  The cruisemaster's cowling looked like it had a horizontally opposed engine, I was guessing.  It's such a good engine design!

Modern light civil aviation is dominated by air-cooled flat boxer fours and sixes - so yeah, basically like a giant Beetle or 911 engine with dual spark.  The helicopter I learned in is (was :-() powered by a Lycoming O-360 flat four.  Radials are... not necessarily higher maintenance, but more difficult to work on due to the cylinder arrangement, and water-cooled engines were a fad that didn't really last much past WWII due to the weight and the serious oh-shit factor of springing a coolant leak.

Water-cooled I6s and V12s are just sexier though.   :-P

Although, as I understand, watercooled inline-4s are becoming more popular in Europe. (Specifically, two different aero conversions of the Mercedes-Benz OM 640 2.0 automotive diesel.)

so good in fact that the Porsche 959, as I learned watching an older episode of Top Gear last night, used a twin-turbo flat 6. it was also the fastest production road car ever made at the time.

Back on the thought of 3-D Printers: Do any of you foresee a day when you could make your own custom glass frames? You could order the lenses, and replace or create new frames as needed - theoretically.

Hmmm... almost would be more interesting to get the resin and refinement to print lenses of any refraction. 


Look ma, no labs! 




(this is from a man whose lenses take over a week to fabricate, not including shipping to and from the lab...)

Some will recognise the Bf109G and Fw190A-5... but the others might stump you. Afficionados will recognise the factory straight away, only one firm ever made aircraft that looked remotely like thst. The obscure project designations though, that's tricky,





Mavens will recognise the complex 3-colour "ambush" pattern on one of those - a pattern usually only found on tanks,

Yes, that configuration really does work.

links are broken, I suspect that forum doesn't allow image hotlinking. I must know, so I can stroke my e-peen.

Oooh, I hadn't noticed those.  They're all attachment ID's to a forum i (we?) aren't registered on. 

Must be one of those fancy forums that displays attachments in the post, and ZoeB just thought she was hotlinking the images...

I am a little disappointed the YouTube video spoils it, because B&V are one of my favorite manufacturers of WWII era Germany, and I'd have loved to have gotten bragging rights to answer first.

Turks of 1918:

Albatros D.II, Albatros C.III, Fokker D.I, Halberstadt D.V of blocks 4 (Green/Brown) and 5 (Green/Lilac).

All 3D printed in nylon.



You have to do a lot of study on the effects of Orthochrome film on greyscales (as well as chasing up records of paints used) in order to determine the colour from the few b&w pictures that survive.

Heh!  I remember actually buying ortho film to experiment with the effects.  Black lips...
