I know......... while we're on the phone I hear them singing just like "Florence" Nightingale.
I first thought You had added Florence to Your art collection, and Your little 'red cap' stature, armed with her gun aiming directly at Florence.

Even Miguel de Rancougne did not know where that engine has landed ! This is Van Gogh kind of territory. I guess it is Russian language, ,I do speak English French Dutch German a a little Italian but alas no Russian.

That is a fantastic website! I haven't gone through much of it yet but so far, I find myself with a strong attraction to this Magnum .91 or whatever it really is. That's a pretty cool idea to use the casting form something readily available and them make everything else to come up with a work of art like this.

Oh BTW, it's Greek and not Russian. I found that out when I tried to translate one of the pages with Babel Fish, which works pretty good, BTW.

Take a look.

Saw this one in Model Engine Gallery, the original cast one was on sale at ebay recently, was bidding on it but forgot to put a final bid on it.

Hi !

the unknown engine is for sure a F2d engine. They needed the split exhaust, becaus the hot gas would burn the leading edge of the wing. Looks like a Prototype diesel version of this engine :

Screw in backplate and ports look the same, intake and cooling fins are different. Exhaust is machined off at your engine. I`ve seen that on older F2D engines of this type, saved weight.

Regards, Sebastian

You forgot... Ooooh. How can you forget that? That must have been frustrating when you realized it. Oh well, some you win and some you lose. You have a very nice collection with or without it and that's a fact.

Here is another early v-twin, as published in a book of 1934.

Any idea what it could be....?

(Clue: Most of the contents of the book is based on older, British material...)

Thanks for your help Sebastian . The motors do seem to have simular features . I thought it might be a team race motor (F2C) with the fins and exhaust cut down . Wish I could pin this motors i.d , I think it is Russian .

No Reginald,

It's Greek.

Here's is the best online translation I could find. It will obviously not translate text that is within images.
