That's a nice engine and a stand too!

These plastic engines would be great for "retired" planes that are still displayed. They often look sort of sad without engines, but with these, painted in black and bright silver, and with a "real" propeller, they would look a lot better.

I have a great idea! you could use it for bonnet ornament with a power pod put a prop on it. because there is no compression the prop will turn it over as you drive along. lol!
it will look like this Very Happy Cool

Those engines and stands turned out really nice! Thumbs Up I agree, they would be perfect for display models. The stands would be nice to display real engines on.

lol! I'd use a real engine with the piston removed so the propeller spins as you drive along.
