Wish they were Nudge, I went to see some Bridgeport tooling he'd been selling, & saw a couple of 4 strokes on a shelf & passed comment, he then said come & have a look at these.

No camera so I asked if he would send me some pics, the little one is really impressive, home made everything, have a look at those exhaust ports in the steel liner, threads so fine you can hardly see them, the prop is for a Cox 010 & looks too big, made me realize how much I've got to learn!

Though I did tell him that if they ever went missing check my place first.

It takes a lot more skill to make something small. the level of accuracy has to be a lot higher.
If it goes missing from your place (once you have taken it from his) you know where it is! :P

I haven't a clue, I don't collect them.

That's a shame, I could have done with the spark plug out of it! looks like it would go in a boat?

Update in that:

Two Big Boys recently AKA an early Fox 78 really nice and similar year ASP108 that is rather big?

I require a muffler for the early hi comp ASP by the way.

Just took a leaflet out of the letterbox, saying that there's no reason I can't have good sex at 65.

Brilliant - because I live at no. 49 so it's not far to walk home afterwards!

Best bit over last few months I got a lot of interesting Australian engines.

This is one of one and I have actually started it. Let me say that My heart was racing as it was last run by the maker.

I used the included documentation as to the fuel mix.

It is unique Australian modeling history and yes I was silly with the $$$s but.........I own it.

The prop is correct size and from my collection of period new old stock.

Can anyone guess what it is?
