Re Are those the V16 Detroit Diesels ?
I wish Red! then she'd be faster than 22knots!! (but sitting up to the gunwales!!) The day someone makes square motors
is the day we will be able to make a reasonable facsimile of an engine. Tried to find a plastic model of the Detroit 453 (thought of making a couple and running the driveshafts from the motors
through them for a scale look) but there are very few even close model motors
(especially to scale) around.
Mostly V8s (had the boat had Detroit 6vs or 8vs I might have been able to bodgey something up) but 4cyl diesel (or petrol for that matter) models
are like lips on a chicken. An Aussie crowd does a reasonable 1/20 scale Falcon motor but that's a petrol 6 and the rocker cover's all wrong.
If I had used the same 28mm brushless as in my HSL I could have made a case around them and built something on that, but the 540 motors
are a bit big. There is a scalish looking Engine shell with a 320? motor inside it on Banggood for around $30 but not sure how big they are, (no size description) - probably look good in a large slowish model.
Never mind, can't see them, just a bit of fun😊.
