Oberursel UR.II for Fokker Dr.I 1/24 - question

Recommended Posts

As they say, better to ask a thousand times than buy unneeded stuff...

 

I want to put aftermarket engine in my 1/24 Fokker Dr.1 and I have two possibilities. One is from ebay:

https://www.ebay.com/itm/1-24-Oberursel-Resin-Engine-UPGRADE-for-Merit-International-Fokker-DR1-24001-/173810914910

 

Second, cheaper, from Cooper State Models is available in Poland right now, as they say it fits 1/24 but on box there is 1/28:

https://www.martola.com.pl/en144/produkty75430/oberursel_ur_ii_110_hp_fit_to_1_24_scale_

 

In 1/1 Oberursel has 960 mm in diameter, so in 1/28 it is 34,28 mm and in 1/24 40,00 mm.

 

I wonder how much it'll be visible. What to do? Go for Cooper State Models one? It's risky...

The one from ebay can be just re-cast of Cooper State one...

I gave the 1:28. copper state engine but unless they up scaled there is no way this engine would be big enough for the 1:24

The pictures on the e-bay auction show it compared to the kit engine and it looks about the same size, so it appears to be scaled correctly. The 1/28th scaled engine wouldn't be close.
