    Thanks for sharing this Paul. Interesting how the seals and combustion chamber have been reversed from the familiar engine design, so the seals are stationary! It would make a good engine for a light aircraft! Peter.

    Yes, I thought the seals looked better. On the model they still move in and out a little but I imagine the shape could be refined.

    I wonder what the performance is like. Subjectively, the power stroke on rotary engines never seems to capture the power like a piston.
