The Seal Baby (AKA 'Alag VT-12') was imported to Sweden along with the Aquila Baby (AKA 'Alag VT-8').....I recall them from from mail order catalogues back then, though I have a feel not too many VT-12's were actually sold. At rare occations they do show up at the odd swapmeet or auction though...
The photo shown below is "borrowed" from the Internet.

Speaking of A.Vella, Hungary, the Alag 'X' range of engines comes to my mind, the most well known beeing the 2.5 cc 'X-3' diesel.
The photo below shows my 'X-4' (1.5cc) and 'X-5' (1cc). I've owned them for several years, and they are still unrun.
The X-5 is very compact for its displacement...probably the most tiny 1 cc I've ever seen....you could easily confuse it with an engine of a considerably smaller capacity.
