Introducing the Blue Bee, the Blew diesel Medallion, and the disappointing OK Cub diesel.

Playing around with "fuel proof" Lustrekote.

"Blew" as in away.

This is just for grins fellas.

As I was trying out Top Flights Corsair blue on the diesel head of the .051 Medallion I thought I would do the back plate on my latest "Silver Bee" too. Both turned out miserable, but I'm leaving the Medallion as is. I turned down the damaged .051 piston to fit back into the cylinder and will retire it to my odds and ends collection as a hopeless case. If I wanted a running .051 Medallion they are available.

Outside of the new plastic venturi (which will be replaced by a less attractive one) and the back plate it's the same rusty diesel I started with.

I like the blue back plate on the SB. I will fuel it up and see how that paint holds up to pure fuel, then probably sandblast it clean again.

The diesel OK Cub turned out to be a disappointment too. It's all there except the diesel piston. The first picture shows the engine piston at TDC.
