Har, I do not acknowledge this until it flies with its original engines. Now that would be a sight http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif

I'll be going, as will a few other BlitzPigs, so I'm sure there will be pics.

Yes indeed. I wish someone would build one from the original blueprints but with better metals.

The german's had some VERY advanced jet engines in development. They make the 004 look tame in comparison.

I always wondered why is it so hard to build an exact same engine (only safer)? All those focke wulfs and none with an original engine, I don't get it, bloody make one. It's metal and pistons, not microscopic high tech circuitry. Sure it would probably be expensive, but hell, museums have money, and so do many rich people with an interest in ww2 aviation.

$$$

I think you underestimate the costs involved in rebuilding original aircraft engines from these times. contrary to popular believes, these engines were the high technology of their time, at times using tolrances that to this day are to the highest specs. The tools and machineries, many of them purpose build for some parts, do not exist anymore and were to be rebuild before work on the engine itself could be started. This whole endavour only makes sense if serial production is at the end, but for that the whole warbirds scene is too small.

certainly piston engines would be real awful but I bet the 004 could be duplicated with far better metals a whole lot cheaper then those.

IIRC there was a project to build Me-262's underway back when Il-2 was new. There were links and pics of construction.
I would be all for safer engines used though. Why endanger some pilots just to say "exact same" when you can make the
weight and power "the same" and avoid deaths and losses?

30 seconds view of something so magnificent seems much longer IME. Especially the first time when attention is highest.

I would just like someone to put an original on a test stand and fire her up to hear the sound is all. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-sad.gif

I doubt there's an original 262 engine in anywhere near safe working condition though.
