    Forty plus years and I still have ten toes, ten fingers and both eyes. I must be doing something right.

            There's also a guy in Oz working on a 1/6th scale Pratt & Whitney 28 cylinder R4360

              I've seen a plane built for one of these somewhere on the net. All aluminum. Will try to find it.

                    Bill, a big NO! But it would be very spectacular if it did.

                        Here is a picture of a working Merlin engine that was displayed at the Iron Fever Expo in York Pennsylvania this summer.
                        The builder is shown in the picture. I can't remember his name.
                        Perhaps someone can help identify this master machinist.
                        Nice work!

                            Here is a better view of the Merlin engine.



                            I went back to my original high resolution image to try to discover the identity of the engine builder. His name tag is partially visible.
