It would be really cool if we could buy miniature versions of a Merlin or some other aircraft engines. With 3D printing and CNC, it would be possible. Then we would really have scale aircraft.

I hope to own a couple 5,7&9 cylinder radial engines at some point. I love the sound they make. This is the real hobby.

Beautiful... simply beautiful. Now when can I order one? I have a couple of years left, I just don't know if I can finish putting one together in that time.

You would think that there would be a small market for such a thing.
2000 manhours @ $20/hr = $40,000.

My guess is that is why. They are doing 5 and 7 cylinder radials. Maybe we will see more in the future.

I do have a couple of 2cylinder engines... and I love them.

I call these novelty engines. While they are works of art they have little value actually powering anything and mostly just show up at engine shows where they are appreciated for the work involved to create them.

Other than the two row, 18 cylinder configuration, I don't see much resemblance from the model radial to a full scale P&W 2800.
