The reality is that I've had several of these for quite some time now. I actually just realized I have another in the cabinet that I haven't photographed yet... Oh well. I'll get that one next time around.

So here they are. I hope you like them....Continue Reading

It's been awhile since I've made any significant posts here on the Blog. Engine collecting has taken a back seat to DLG flying for some time now.

Here is what my engine display case looked like before I sold off many to fund some competition planes.

I've begun collecting again on a more limited basis. I have a few new spark ignition engines and some older OS engines. When I get some time, I'll redo the display case and take some more pictures.

... I still have a few but most have been sold. I sold them to generate funds for my new obsession, DLG (Discus Launch Glider) flying and competition. I'll post a photo or two of the gliders soon.

Well, I keep saying this is my last one but like a Lays Potato chip no one can have just one and even just 15 of 20 it seems. I'm beginning to get some focus on where I'd like to concentrate my collecting. In the beginning I just liked them all and anything I could get was what I wanted. These days I'm focusing on lesser seen 4-cycle engines and twins of any kind..... that I can afford.

Anyway, here are the three 4-cycles that I've added to the collection since my last entry here....Continue Reading

Well, that's the nature of the engine collection hobby, isn't it? I suppose some of you just buy and buy without ever trading anything away. In this case I traded for the G-Mark twin you see below and I sold some others off to buy the Webra T4-40. So what is no longer in my collection? The Contestor D60-R, The Rogers .29, The Enya .06, the Enya .049 and the O&R Midjet .049 have all gone to the collections of others. I enjoyed them while I had them but I've set my sights of other engines I find more attractive... for one reason or another. So here are my two newest and they sit quite prominently on the collection shelf, I might add.

Well I've been picking up an engine or two here and there. I don't have a lot to say about them at the moment but I thought I'd add the pictures anyway.

Time to make another entry in the blog. This time I have a couple beauties to add to the ignition side of my collection. These babies, particularly the K6 really make the collection look good. I hope you like them and if so please let me know. I'd really like to hear which ones you like best. After all, I don't just collect them for myself. I collect them to share with you and everyone else that might even have just a passing interest.

Here are my last two engines. They are vintage ignition engines and this is one part of the collection I intend to grow considerably. I'm just fascinated by them.

This will probably be the last entry on the engine collection for awhile. I spent all my discretionary money for awhile. Now, I'm going to build myself a display case and do some much needed research on each of these. There is enough there to keep me busy for awhile. I hope all who stop in, enjoy the collection. I certainly have.
