Yes but not sure its functional(the build is very crude)but it was on eBay awhile latter. I much prefer the TD .010 version built by the late Dennis Fadden!

It is indeed an early Fuji, seems to be in nice condition, can you tell us more about that nice hydroplane in the background?

As I am told these are very rare (and looking what some people are willing to pay for them, then better keep it in its pristine condition....

I have 3 of the more recent Fuji's
-an old runner that is regularly in use still, originally aircooled but converted to LC
-a more or less brand new FW17RC (watercooled type) that I cannot resist and have to use, even if it kills the value, It is so sweet looking realistic....
-and a never started Seahorse with exhaust throttle. That last one, I keep new, as I don't think they were good runners anyway.

I am still looking to see if I am really the only person in the world still running his Fuji outboard on a nearly daily basis (when I am home, that is...).

I've seen them go for around $150.00 and up. There is a small market for them as every year at the Toledo Show there is at least one person that has a table in the upstairs swap shop area that buys and sells these little outboard motors plus other vintage engines.

For a unique outboard!

There is a set of plans on eBay for an outboard conversion design, love the picture with the Mills diesel as power head! From the description it seems to date back to the mid 50's(Look a bit like the SuperTigre G. 29 Fuoribordo )

The bevel gears might be hard to source in that size
