WRIGHT J-5. 9-CYLINDER RADIAL ENGINE

This is an example of a finished engine in ¼ scale. It’s a copy of the engine in the famous Spirit of St. Louis operated by Charles Lindberg When he crossed the Atlantic ocean in 1927.
September 2013. I was lucky to get hold of a set with castings.
This is a photo of Karl-Erik Olsryd, a Swedish gentleman who has constructed the ¼ scale engine. I have never met him, but by rumors he is a genius in model engineering.

Thank you. I only use oil and it is the same oil as the cutting oil. Good luck with your machine.

Thank you for the fine compliments. I use a lot of emery paper, rotating steel brush and polishing paste. And many hours of work.

Wonderful job! How are you restoring the brilliant finish on non-painted surfaces such as the spindle nose, handles, dials?
