Not really interested in cars anymore : has become the dirt of the street as far as I'm concerned. Drove Morgans for over 42 years without one single day withhout. Sold last year. I would not be able to remember all the names of cars I've owned. My first was a 950 Mini, then Austin Healy Sprite, an Austin 1600GT, then a Rover P6 / V-8, then my first Morgan, Chevrolet Camaro, Buick Sky Hawk, CitroŽn Palace, CitroŽn Deux-Chevaux, Morgan 3-wheeler Jap Beetleback.......... Jaguar E-Type V-12 (was my ex-fathers) Jaguar Saloon (again ex-fathers) Ferrari Dino, Mercedes Stationcar, Alfa Romeo 155 GTA, Porsche Boxster, en now Porsche 911 Carrera cabriolet... but there are missing quite a few. But where can one drive freely here these days ? Had many motorcycles too, FN Sarolea TWN BMW Ducatti Harley Sportster. Bought a new Sportster last year but after one single run I sold it three months ago, Belgian cowboy traffic has become far too dangerous. I am interested in a nice VW camper but fully restored as I'm also no longer interested in restoring cars.

Similar story to be found with the Kavan FK-50 twin.... It is rumoured that Ogawa Shigeo was inspired by this engine when he designed his firt twin the Gemini twin in 1979. Aaaach history.
Hi Reggy, thank you so much by the infos and pics on this magnificent engine
Best regards

Congrats on the inline Ross Bill, I was never able to find one and now I do not care much anymore. Hope the Hiness is ok the crankshaft inside is rather weak, if you dismantle it do'nt drop it or it will bend.

That was my first as well Reggy. lol
Then the Spitfire and after that the black Stuka.
The little Cox Skycopter flew pretty good though!


Didn't take long to figure out they were lousy flyer's so the the Sig CL kit builds began shortly there after.

I still have my well used PT-19. The plastic is probably brittle by now. It taught me to fly and to start engines. The 049 soon found its way into a balsa plane.

My first CL model was a plastic Cox set up. Never did fly. I went to a balsa model with a Cox Thermal hopper. It flew very well on 25 ft lines.

And my first. The Wasp powered Aeromite in the center from 1953. The Turbo jet on the left was later. Both flew very well.

Would anyone have any parts or a motor, or know where I could get them. The rest of it is in good condition.
Thanks Barry
I gather no one has any bits for this, the other option is does anyone need these parts.
