Whatever it is (now translating an appropriate old Swedish phrase):

Hi Gluehand,
I'm pretty sure the Taplin 4 is a real one.
Ther's a picture of it P112 of the Model Aero Engine Encyclopedia by Ron Multon 1958 - rather before photoshop I think.
I also remember a photo or two in early 1950's Aeromodeller.

Aah...confirmed then...I'm relieved...the 'fog of doubt' has lifted...

It would be exiting to see (and hear) it running...and a thrill to adjust 4 comp. levers along with the single carb...

I wonder were this engine went, after the 2006 photo was taken....the article indicates it may have been auctioned to...somewhere...

Gossie, that 52 Sorcerer at 11 oz should VTO way up there in 10 seconds. It has nice lines for a real floater. In a 30 oz sport R/C model, my Webra 1.5 had more than enough power to pull loops from level flight.

Hi I'm in the UK. Could I just ask does anyone know if there are any new small diesels being made or imported to the UK at the moment?
I know PAW are still going, but I was wondering about MP Jet and CS, small diesels under 1cc. PAWs seem a bit too revvy to me, maybe I'm wrong.
Having bought a few basket cases over the years I'd really like a new one that I can run in myself and know its been looked after on good juice.
Any ideas please?
I did receive one suggestion:
http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/P-line-0-75cc-...item5d2e375dbf, anyone tried one?
Many thanks
Phil

Phil, welcome to this thread; in answer to your question, yes.
See a previous thread and post at-
http://www.rcgroups.com/forums/showthread.php?t=1384279,
or look on this diesel thread and you will find there are a few "new oldies" to be had.
CS makes quite a few.
I take it you are not looking on EBay? If you are, just remember that a "nib" may be just that, but it hasn't had oil in 40 years!

Well, as some of you may know, I'm fairly new to engine collecting. I've been posting in the glow engine thread but for some reason I'm most attracted to collecting the little diesels. Here is a pic of one that I just won last night on Ebay. Anything you may know about this little gem that you would like to pass along would be greatly appreciated. Here it is.

Another very nice looking little engine, Mr. Wiz ! This one dates from 1954, and I think may have a neoprene O ring to seal the contra-piston. Is it locked up ? If so (and you want to free the contra-piston) we may have to devise a special method. On the one hand, the contra (not being so tightly fit as a metal to metal job) should be easy to knock out. On the other hand, the rubber sealing ring may well be perished and need replacing. But can we find another new one ? If you don't intend running it, then there's no problem. Maybe we have a McCoy Diesel expert here ? BOB

So nice , I would take the tank off the back and fly that on my C/L model on Saturday morning

To me a Diesel is not a Diesel unless it flies round in circles and crashes in to the ground , that's the way I use to do it when I was young

Well like all of my wins previously I'm so excited about the purchase that I just have to post it here even before I get it. If it's locked, I'd like to free it up but this is for a collection and not to fly. If messing with freeing it up will ruin it's collectible value I'll just pass.

I'd love to buy one of those bigger twins I see people gobbling up but I just don't want to spend that much money on this just yet. Besides, I really love these little gems and I'm having a blast just getting them home. I saw a really nice little display case at the MECA booth in Toledo that I think I'll copy for myself.

For me it was cheap Cox and Testors 049 powered CL planes that I bought in the toy department of the local K-Mart store. I don't have a single Cox or Testors engine now and I don't intend to get any either. I hated those things.

Real aeromodeling is done wherever you find it. For me it's a 2Kw electric powered pattern plane.... and collecting these little pieces of man jewelery called model airplane engines.
