    Greetings all,
    I'm new to this forum and wanted to share a few photos of a 1913 Clerget Rotary Engine that I just finished.

    I found the free model here:

    -Engines WWI - Paperwarbirds

    Here are some views-





    The stand was made from a National Geographic magazine cover.

    Thanks, Richard, and thanks for the great project. Yes, I'm an engine fan (dreaming of a paper R4360 one day :thumb:)
    Yes, I will build the others too. I am working up to the Le Rhone!

    Not only does the engine look great, the engine stand looks awsome.

    You have very strong building skills. Excellent work on this very fine model. The display stand and photos are also of superior quality. Thanks for showing this wonderful fabrication.

    Very nice! You could build an airplane to go around it ;) but then most of the darn thing gets hidden :( I hate when that happens - the engine is often the hardest part!

    Truly marvelous build! Every time I go through my weekly forum updates I'm inspired by some really outstanding piece of work some other member has done. This work it's yours.

    Thanks for the inspiration.
