This was an incredible find. about 45 pounds, 30 inches high, 360 degree around, it is an exact 1/2 scale hand hewn model of a 1927 Wright Motor Company Whirlwind J-r, the engine that Lindberg and Ameilia Earhart used to power there airplanes. I have the original mechanical book and a 1927 flyer of the engine. Always gets the astounded comments from the guys and the what is it from the gals. It took the fellow who made it over 4 years to complete. He had been featured for his wooded Harley Motorcycle in a magazine. I saw several other items he made but only was able to purchase a couple of other small items. If you'd like further pictures, email me at Fullernest@comcast.net
