Superb engine John, do you have any plans to mount this engine in a model aircraft, I would really love to see and hear that plane fly! Can anybody suggest what kind of period aircraft used a single P & W DoubleWasp engine? Congratulations and thanks.

Do not plan on putting it in a airplane. It will be run at shows on the bench for people to see.

The full size R-2800 was used to power several types of fighters and medium bombers during the war, notably the US Navy's F4U Corsair, the Corsair's naval rival, the Grumman F6F Hellcat, the US Army Air Forces P-47 Thunderbolt, and the twin-engined B-26 Marauder & A-26 Invader. Over 30 different planes used the R-2800 engine.

Thank's for comments.
