The pictures are great. I didn’t know that a lot of these diesel engines ever existed.
A lot of us older generation types are just reminiscing and day dreaming, which is not a bad thing.
Are there any young modelers out there? If so, do you like the hobby and plan on staying with it? Only you can answer that. You’ve seen the past posts of engines that are no longer available.
Now’s the time to collect a few present day specimens and put them away, or use them and keep them. In 25, 30, 40, 50 years, you may have your own wonderful collection of “old engines”. Get them now, or tomorrow they may not be available.
A modern present day example of an affordable, well made, little diesel is the .03 cubin or 0.5 cc PAW. It is shown next to the Cox .09 for size comparison.
