Response to The difference between the two on the P-38 was rotation direction

...I was mainly referring to the Aires engines and the inverted casting of the -89 engine. The -85 engine (which is moulded right side up) is the correct type for a P-39, not for a P-38 I think, it lacks the gear box for instance. The -89 would be correct (it has the gear box) but it's moulded upside down, i.e. it has no top detail like the intake manifolds. If you mould a piece of resin like this it's clearly meant to be installed upside down so the lack of detail is hidden underneath. But the engines in a P-38 are mounted right side up (heads at the top), regardless whether it's a left or right hand one. This is what confuses me. Perhaps Aires just made a mistake...?
