Finally managed to download some pic's from my camera of the IC stand at the UK Bristol show.

Some really fantastic work and my pic's don't do them credit.
This was the best show I have ever seen as regards models, one stand with nothing but IC engines, one with nothing but jet's and turbines and I could go on but I never saw all of it.

This is a 18 cylinder Napier Deltic engine, about 10" cube.

Double row radial engine.

Note the fin details.

So as not to clutter bandwidth up for the dialup people there are some more pic's but high res in this folder

John,
Thanks for sharing, not much opportunity for shows around here, the GEARS show in Oregon 2300 miles!
You are having way too much fun.

Thanks for the pics,John.I would love to hear the sound of that double radial running!Whether the fins were cast or machined,a nightmare either way.
The Napier is not to be sneezed at either.Superb workmanship:).

John, thank you for sharing the pictures of items produced by the "supreme human beings". They are just fantastic! From my point of view, something like that is unattainable by me in my lifetime.
It is so nice really to live in the UK. One can take a fast train these days and go anywhere in the country for any show. I live in Maine and everything is a "million" miles away. vic
