Thank you for the update Roger. I'm all for it! The plane will be Brian's legacy and should always be flown in his honor. Every time you fly it, it will remind you of him, and will serve to keep his memory alive.

I therefore opted to spend just a modest amount of the money on the interior detail parts and spend MORE money on the Pilot which is clearly visible to all.

This interior canopy DOES NOT lend itself to having an OPEN cockpit door for the Pilot to get in. I plan to "Simulate a Cockpit door with a hinge and a more defined space between the door and fuselage but mine will not actually open. This is something to ponder if you want a real door opening and you might have to look at an alternate interior kit.

quote from a ex RCAF warbirder - "a man on a galloping horse will not see that"
translation:
as you fly a display pass with a bit of left bank on, going past your "flying" buddy's " they will say "NICE PASS" as they see the grace of your Spitfire in flight! they will not see your cockpit detail.

the Hangar Queen builders in the group will say "nice cockpit"

my 2 cents of over doing cockpit detail, good call on your part.

Re: CARF SPITFIRE ASSEMBLY and SCALE DETAILING

Ok so I was finally able to continue the build on Brian's plane . He had trouble with the sliding canopy so I started from scratch with a new canopy ,built a brass frame and mounted the canopy to it ,working fine now .I'm not to happy with the carf canopy quality but it will have to do. Also started the build on the functional custom exhaust. I will be upgrading the Kolm 77 engine he was planing to use for a Valach 120 inline . I will split the exhaust to exit the functional exhaust . front cylinder will exit L/F & R/R of the manifolds and the rear cylinder will exit the R/F & L/R of the manifolds. this way you will have alternating exhaust on both sides of the plane . should sound real cool. after I weld the exhaust I will flatten the tips

Re: CARF SPITFIRE ASSEMBLY and SCALE DETAILING

ok so I have the exhaust finished . been welded by the great welder Lance at BISSON CUSTOM MUFFLERS . great guys if you need a special item ,painted the exhaust with heat paint . I was going to flatten the pipes a bit but kind of like the look even if it's not perfect scale. anyway should sound cool .

Re: CARF SPITFIRE ASSEMBLY and SCALE DETAILING

Ok so the engine has been ordered . Valach 120 inline . it took me a month to make this decision but the valach won out over the kolm in the end . the deciding factor was theValach has a single carb / weight is much less , and the kolm no longer comes in 180 timing , besides the sound I do not care for the 270 degree setup as mechanically it's out of balance . anyway I can get back to the build as soon as it shows .

Re: CARF SPITFIRE ASSEMBLY and SCALE DETAILING

I'm interested in what you will do to provide cooling air to the rear cylinder. I've seen some setups that used intricate shrouding to get cool air to the back cylinder. I even saw one setup where a guy used an electric ducted fan to get the air to the back cylinder. I have a 1/4 scale Mustang project hiding in the kit closet and I'm always looking for ideas. You are doing a great job on this build!

Re: CARF SPITFIRE ASSEMBLY and SCALE DETAILING

The Idea is to use the tropical air cleaner that was fitted to some models , I don't like the look as much as the cleaner belly scoop models but it's far better for cooling and engine fit. It's also the model flown by the Canadian Ace, Buzz Burling ,I think his name was . The exhaust will be the real trick , this is the other reason I chose the Valach . It has a single carb placed to the rear of the engine allowing me to run the header pipes up to the scale exhaust outlets.The single carb will also help keep setup simple . When I ordered the engine is said with cooling baffle ?? have no idea what that is but hopefully it's some sort of assembly to help baffle the engine . I will post pictures when it comes in . I am sure it will be the longest shipping in history LOL.

Re: CARF SPITFIRE ASSEMBLY and SCALE DETAILING

The engine has arrived so I can now continue the build , What a amazing engine/ masterpiece ,and what a beast . Should require no nose weight now . Next will be to further shorten the firewall . The Valach is 10mm longer so I will have to cut off the firewall that Brian installed and do it over . sorry Brian but I had to do it . The engine comes with a basic baffle kit , will very helpful when installing the engine.
