I have been building this 9 cylinder rotary engine (i.e. the cylinders rotate and the crankshaft is stationary) off and on for about 3 years, I am going to try and do some more regularly this year.

Hello Bill

Thanks for comments, It's made from the Lew Blackmore book. I have a lot more pieces made, but are not attachable at the moment
