I've always liked the FS engines. The only one I ever had myself for real was the OS .52

Edit.. Thinking back now I did have one other and that was one in the .90 size that was on a gold Piper Cub. That plane was fun because it also had floats. My memory of 30+ years ago is a bit weak. The FS were about half the power of the two stroke but boy did they sound good.

RF-8 Screen Shots

I found that until OS came out with Their A series 4 strokes, the engines were too small for my needs. The Alfa 110 and the 155 were great and still are for 80 and 90 inch wing spans if they aren't to heavy.
The first time I saw the Riley, I really liked it, and I like painting the RF-8 Riley, it's a real shame we can't load up our favorite Color Schemes into RF-X, but then again, we can't do much of any kind of editing in X so we'll just go for it in RF-8. Here's a shot of the one I just Finished.
A FS series engine would not begin to fly this bird .

I'm curious what engine would you have you preferred me model for that plane?

I put one of my Gas engines on it at first (DA Single) but that seemed wrong with the sound profile I created for the plane. So I thought a four stroke would be a better choice. I know that still doesn't match the sound profile but it's a lot closer than a Gas engine.

My P-38L for some reason when you said the OS FS series didn't work for you I thought you where thinking I should have modeled something else for that plane, just curious if that was it and what you thought was best.

When you described the manor you were going to build your 38, I determined that it was not what I would be interested in so I have not kept up with the build so I know little of it other than it is less scale than your Bearcat. That is not meant to offend you or anyone else, it's just what I prefer.
I'm not aware of the dimensions and projected weight, so I would not make any suggestions, however the real bird is a MAGNIFICENT flying machine and has a sound that it shares with no other plane.

No problem that build thread is gone I'm working on it from home with no build thread. I was curious on the engines you liked I might model one.
