Nice! Yes please to a build threadLooking at the construction do you think it is suitable for conversion to electric power ?CheersPete
I would fit the 62 just for total reliability, ease of starting and most important I like them in scale models.How long is that driver. They do a long one for the 62, though the one you have looks long.You could easily make one or a thick spinner back plate would do the same thing , you could easy make that on your latheSi
I've used longer prop drivers on Zenoahs with no problems as long as all is balanced. Mudflaps Tiger Moth has a long prop driver, longer than commercially available, my Raiden has and my Tigers have had the longer than standard ones too. If you know someone that could knock you one up then I'd say go for it without reservation Ian.
Now the, how do I go about that I wonder
I reckon it could be done. Loads of room for batteries.However, I know nothing about electrification.Charlie C
No reason a spacer cant be made up as long as you make the locating protrusion into the driver and corresponding hole in the other end to take the flywheel machined upstandy middle bit it should line up perfectly just needing longer bolts. I would bolt the engine to the firewall with it sitting at it's best leaving room for the head against the cowl and make the prop driver to fit whats needed.
IIRC and I have not looked at one for a while but the driver has a hole that located accurately over a protrusion on the flywheel so if you machine a indent in the spacer and protrusion to go in the driver you will centrally locate it perfectly just needing 5mm or whatever longer bolts to put it on than normal.
watching this with interest . i keep looking at the macchi mc200 and would be interested to know if the retracts etc are the same quality
Nice looking model. I have long had a thing for the Wyvern's purposful lines. Just one thing from the photos, it looks as if the wheels are too far back. The real Wyvern's wheels were well ahead of the LE and certainly were not attched to the gear doors, which hung straight down. If I am right the ground handling will be a bit of a bu***r.

Nah, the aircrew will have no problem with ground handling.....
And if we do there's nothing the grubbers like more than polishing out a few scuffs in the jolly old paintwork. Keeps them humble.
you love us really!
