I talked to a guy here in Denver who builds these. His are absolute works of art and they all run, but even he admits that the just don't make the horsepower to power anything to their scale. Plus the weight factor. His radial aircraft engines don't make enough 'umph' to fly a plane the same scale as the engines.
Even so, they sound so cool. His Arden head Ford V8 even has a lumpy cam idle.
