I showed this engine to Paul Gibeault. Here's His reply in part after seeing it. I hope he doesn't mind.

Kevin,

WOW, that's nice!

BTW, Nelson offers his plugs in 2 types: Hot & Cold. I only use the cold plug presently, but use 35% - 65% nitro fuels. I do like the idea of the turbo plugs because they are offered in many heat ranges. They worked superbly in my Cl. 2 mouse racer.
The only problem is that just to buy one of each heat range will end up costing you ~$100! Ouch.

I look forward to hearing how it runs this season.

All the best.

Cheers,

Paul

Kevin, ever since I saw how you built and then painted the Tsunami here and on Stunt Hangar, I thought three things.
1. That plane needs a screamer on front like a serious combat engine in Ken Cooks Avatar...the very beautiful Shuriken

THANK YOU FREDVON4!  Us550510

2. Dang I don't have one...BUT!! I do have a pretty sharp Cox .051

3. Perfect stocking stuffer and will really look cool on Kevin's Tsunami

Also, if your a Tsunami fan, be sure to check out all the Tsunami videos I uploaded to You Tube. Its called the Walt Brownell channel, named after the guy that donated a huge amount of videos for the project. Just click on the playlist.

Kind regards.

Kevin.

Kevin,

Very nice build and your smile really makes it worthwhile. Fred is one of a kind. I owe him a phone call as I believe I missed one.

If and when you fly that circle burner, please keep us updated. Enjoy!
