Own Work – 1914 GNOME Monosoupape B2 engine


Work conducted for the Combat Air Museum, Topeka, Kansas involved the origination of the 3D model (from scratch), with the objective of 3D printing an 80% scale version, for mounting onto an 80% scale model of an Airco DH2 WW1 fighter.  This work was carried out whilst working for Kansas University, although I ultimately concluded this project on my own, using my own 3D printer.
