I thot these engines might be of interest- the .051 was built entirely, by Paul Frisby-in about 1952- the long nosed .29 a little later
Paul was a wind tunnel model make at Convair in 1950 time period - He made a flying working Convair Mainliner powered by two Super Cycs - retracts flaps lights full interior etc..
I helped him fly it (last flight in 1951 in provo Utah) Paul could make a watch out of lump of iron using a pen knife-- The first engine shown is a Redshift .61 from England -using fuel delivery similar to Japanese design YS
The dog?
That's Libby- a Beagle/Cocker mix - faithful(?)watchdog for my 84 MB TD- she watches while I drive.
