    Hey Guys,
    Take a look at this, they already made a radial version, now the D9. IT's in german, so many of you need to translate it.

    Thanks for the link Bomblast!

    This D-9 will be an amazing sight! I wonder how much HP the Allison engine will put out though?

    Will the Allison be mounted inverted like the Jumo ? I think the Allison produces close to 1770 HP. It will be awesome to see a D9 flying with its older Anton brother. Imagine two of those swarming over Duxford bouncing a Mustang and Spitfire pairing

    I don't think it will be placed inverted, as they mention that a special down-swept exhaust system will be made. I really hope they don't alter the shape of the cowling.

    And yes, tha Anton and Dora would be an excellent sight. But I really don't think they will be allowed to bounce Mustangs and Spitfires. It will probably be the other way around though.

    Wont! If you look lower you will find that they produced brand new reduction gear, both to bring prop axis lower and create space for coolant/oil radiator.

    True, not that it didn't happen the other way around from time to time.
