Can anyone identify this steam engine?

This little steam engine came to me in a group of model airplane engines from an estate. It is new and was in a plain white cardboard box, which had the serial number hand written on it but nothing else.

It has about a 14mm stroke and I'd guess about a 10mm bore. It measures about 3 3/8" wide overall. It looks to me to be of fairly recent vintage, and is quite nicely made and finished. As is probably obvious to most in this forum, it is a V twin double acting oscillating type engine.

That engine is valued at $568 dollars. Bet you didn't expect that.

No I didn't.

I'm an airplane person, and with its value being what it is, this engine should find a new home with someone other than me.

I would be pleased if I could get $300 for it - which I think would be an excellent price for someone who truly desired for it. It is in pristine never mounted, never run condition.
