All,

Basics of the kit engine are done...but I'll need to do some touch-up before adding some more extra detail. Also...after looking at it...I can't tell if I put the conical front portion of the crank case on the wrong side! I'm staying with it, but it sure seems to have a long nose...

Here it is so far: First bank done, and then front and back all done with piston rods added.

Engine's looking very good from here Dan. Ignition harness and wires should top it off nicely. You seem to be a natural at this.

Thanks so much, Elliot. These paper models, to me, take the best of old time balsa stick and tissue and combine with plastic model techniques to make a really nice hobby. I love my plastic models, but really enjoy vacuform and scratch building in that medium more than just throwing in the glue and shaking the box! These card models sort of hit all the creative and detail buttons and they are NOT shake and bake!

I'll post some more tonight if I can get the rest of this engine detailed...Looking good so far.

Cheers,

Dan

Good Evening All,

I got the engine detailed enough to make it look a bit more interesting under the cowling. Not perfect, but nicer than the kit. I used paper, plastic and some tiny hollow flexible rubber tubing sold in fishing supplies for tying tiny flies and midges. The bolts are all heat-pulled plastic sprue cut like little sausages to length with an X-acto blade and glued in place individually. I was going to use my punch set and some paper but I've misplaced my smallest punch!!!

The silver ring is several layers of paper just detail painted with silver. The leads are the aforementioned flexible tubing. The protrusions at the 12 and 6 o'clock positions on the crank case are folded paper. I also painted the crank case a deeper grey since this seems a more accurate color.

I think I'll tackle the prop blades and landing gear/wheels/tires tomorrow. I'm trying to get the little things out of the way that usually cause me to put something on the shelf when the airframe is all done!

Thanks for looking and more soon...Dan

Your enhancements have improved the look of the stock engine immensely. Well done!

Marvelous engine! I have taken note of your methodology, but doubt that I have the skill to produce a similar marvel.

Thanks, Folks. This is a really nice kit so far and who will ever make a J-22 in this scale in plastic???!!! Who cares when we've got this little jewel.

Today I painted up the spinner:

Then I made the kit prop but I wanted it to be chrome and have more finished edges that didn't look quite so cut.

So, with lots of sanding and priming and more sanding and priming, I ended up with a passable chrome prop using Alclad Chrome. It looks nice and shiny and who can tell it's made of paper???

Next are the landing gear and wheels and then I can FINALLY start the actual plane with the cockpit! Can't wait.

Thanks for looking....Dan
