to Bill Morbacher : here are the only Fox engines I still have, I did lose your g-mail with the pics you sent on the 49. I did convert the small A.Hende to one of my home made sparkplugs.

Here may be the pictures I sent. My full size Fox .59 High-Torque, Arne Hende's .09, and Woody Bartelt's .059. Woody's has a dummy plug in the scale head; I've also shown it with the accessory glow head

Februari earlier this year that great machinist George Luhrs passed away. Here is one of his tiny ignition engines or should I say jewels ? Thanks to Paul Knapp I managed to obtain this one a few years ago. And yes I did run it but due to malfuntion of that plug I was not able to have a long constant run, I must make a plug myself and run it again. That man did have no golden but platina hands !

G'day Reginald.

That's a lovely collection piece. Especially taken by the lovely fuel tank (I assume that it's glass).

Mr George Luhrs was a real professional.

What is the capacity btw?

The tank is made of perspex not glass, capacity is .074 cu.inch. The engine is started with a pull cord which is not that easy so I planned to add a small spinner so I can start it with my little Astro Flight starter but for some reason it did'nt happen... yet, here are some more pictures.

This is a FROG 500 Petrol Ignition, PE 124 mentioned previously. A superb engine, the ignition version was released a few years after the glow.
This engine has found a buyer in the US.
