Wow! The details on the cylinders is wonderful! Sounds like it runs quite nicely, too!
Very nicely done, Mauro.

Gorgeous! My favorite I.C. engine type.
Ignition or glow?
What aircraft will it pull through the air?
I'm a scale builder and flyer of R/C aircraft from way back.

Glow
Cannot say what scale but Bore = 0.945" Stroke = 0.966" Total Displacement = 3.39 cubic inches
I used to fly U control 60 years ago. A 0.35 engine would fly a 1.4 meter wingspan with a 9x6 prop
If I were 59 years younger I will build a plane. I am sure it will pull a 3 meter wingspan or a biplane with 2 m The prop is a 20 x 10

As it is now it will go on top of the china cabinet - wife will complain for at least a week
