       Remove this ad - become a site supporter!
I have been all over the internet in what seems like a big circle and still could not find what i was looking for...

Can anyone direct me to a good site where i can view some plans and drawings on 1/4 scale twin engines. (Gas Engines)
I have a pair or 32's CC and i would like to see what my NEXT project could look like

I would consider looking at Ziroli plans maybe for quarter scale.

Depends what you mean by quarter scale.If you mean a larger size twin gas powered model that is one thing.
If you mean a true one quarter scale of something like a B25,or D18 ,or DC3 that is going to be one big model.
Assuming you mean larger gas models of real airplanes that could be powered by your 32cc gassers (McCullogh conversions?) then check out the Hosteller and Zirolli web sites.
Large projects like any of these are not for the faint of heart,or those with an anemic budget.
Since retracts for any of the above can easily run 500$ or more you may want ot look at fixed gear large models like the twin otter for example.

Like Kevin said, these models are going to cost some $$$ to complete. The wood kit is going to be around $400, but you have to remember that the fiberglass parts and other plastic parts are separate - thats going to run you another $2-300, especially since you are looking for a TWIN engine plane. The retracts for a model of this size is going to be ASTRONOMICAL in price because of the weight of the plane. At 35lbs or so, those retract struts have a lot to hold up. To put things in perspective - I have been researching Wendell Hostetler's 182 skylane. Its a single engine, fixed gear. The nose strut ALONE is $250 - and its FIXED. Then you need wheels, and for saftey's sake I will put breaks on there as well - another $250. It all adds up

XP-67 Moonbat Twin

How about something totally radical like the XP-67 Moonbat.
I have 70" drawings. Recently, I sent out a 100" wingspan set to a serious modeler in Australia! Scan the net and send me an email if your interested.
