Hi everyone,

I've got my hands on the new Austro-Daimler 120PS Aero Engine in 1:16 scale by Wiener Modellbau Manufactur. Here is my first look review: This beauty of a kit is designed and produced by Peter Plattner. It's a multi-media kit that that contains resin, photo-etch, CNC milled push rods and detail wire. Here are some pictures............





The engine block.....................







The cylinders...............





The magnetos and mounting fixtures.................





Three different types of exhaust pipes to choose from : long and straight, long and curved, short and curved





More plumbing and detail parts....................







Spark plugs.......................





Rockers and linkages..............



Photo-etch......................



Wire detail.......................



CNC milled push rods.......................




Here are pictures of the incredibly detailed engine built by Peter Plattner.










I'm really excited to start this kit!!
