Added:
Cutouts of the fins for the exhaust manifolds, ignition cables, and head bolts.
And then the cables themselves.

Was then time for another test fit (the TT77 is a separate max project). That showed the cables will have to get some more bends in them to better route into the firewall...

Custom content disclaimer:
Have not looked at the SMB plans recently, so it is rather likely the engine is not quite scaled correctly...

Sorry, I did not mean to say anything except here is another example. Probably the coolest engine that I have owned to-date. I plan to put it on an RC Guys Ag Wagon. (Cessna 188B)

Wow, this build has really progressed since my last look at it during the summer.

Call to airfoil experts

The plans state the airfoil on the Sig Morrisey Bravo is a NACA 43015.
RF does not have that in the data base they use.
Nor have I (as of yet) found any data on that airfoil.

So to those who have airfoil characteristic knowledge, what is the closest match from those that are available?

Thanks

Is it possible that you can provide a broader pic. of the airfoil that are in the plans.???, I have found (looking at airfoils in RF)that they don`t vary to much from a # that is close to another #, in other words, if there`s a # close to NACA 43015 in the RF editor, you could probably use it.
