I was looking at the Stearman now up for downloading and saw the Wasp engine by Fern Douglas and to my eyes there looks to be more detail in the engine. I was wondering if this is offered in the latest download? I have to rebuild the Navy version because I gave mine to my doctor for all the help she has given me. I still have the Army version in my case but if I did do this model over again is there way I can get that same engine on my model?
About half way down the page.

That engine is a 9 cylinder, the Stearman has a 7 cylinder, and no it is not in the latest download. You could probably modify the one in the kit to look more like that by adding push rods made out of light wire. Also the cylinders off of Oddballs trimotor would look better than the stock ones, but you would probably have to fool with them a little to find the right size. You would also have to add a little to the top of cylinder for a place for the push rods to anchor, and of course add a rudimentary exhaust system if you feel energetic.

Beard you know I love you right? I'm just a simple old man who wishes he had found card Stock modeling long ago. As a simple old man you are scaring the crap out of me. Do you really think I have that capability? Thank you for the reply. wc
