To scale modelers, there is inherent enjoyment in the challenge of producing models that represent full-scale aircraft. The models themselves run the gambit from very loose semi-scale likenesses to full-blown museum scale models. Certain model subjects tend to force the modeler’s hand when they possess physical characteristics that must be copied to make the model look “right”. One such feature, which gives headaches to modelers around the world, are exposed engine cylinders. Sometimes we are lucky enough to find commercially available cylinders of the proper engine in the correct scale but what do we do if there is nothing suitable on the market?
