Hello,
I build 1/4 scale resin aircraft engines. Most of what I make are marine conversions. I’m finishing up a pair of Capitol Marine conversions of the Hispano-Suiza H-3. The next engine I would like to make would be the Hall-Scott A-7. I have lots of photos of aircraft version but not one with a marine conversion. Can anyone help? Thanks, Keith nahma47@gmail.com

nahma,
Your models are wonderful! Thanks for sharing your pictures. Do you ever sell them? I want a Hisso.

Thanks!
Yes I do sell them occasionally. Most people are discouraged by the sticker
shock. Typically I make two or three of a particular engine, one for my
collection and the others to defer some of the investment involved. My
Liberty project ate up almost 1000 hours of work (it is on ebay right now).
I'm working on only two of the Hissos, I did cast enough parts for a third
though. The second is not spoken for yet. Not sure if you can tell from the
photos but the engine is over 17" long and 12" wide. So far the Hisso
project is a tad over 800 hours. Let me know if you are healthy and have a
strong heart before I give you a price. I want to be up front, most people
don't appreciate the hours involved in a project this size. I will say this
I make significantly less then minimum wage on one. This is a hobby. email me if you would like more info.
Take care, Keith (the link is to some of my other projects)

I own a Capitol, but it isn't an aero based one. I really like this one.

This is one of the engines my model is based on. A friend was at the auction and burned a roll of film walking around it for me. The engine went to Canada.
