Hawker Hind Biplane

Just bought this 60 year old model. Seems to be AMCO 3.5cc diesel. Looking forward to resoring & flying.
Pretty plane. Do you recognise the engine?

Thank you. So good it has the original engine. Seems engine can be dated precisely to 1950 or 1951.The Hind was still in the New Zealand airforce as a trainer then! Can not be many balsa planes 60 years old!

This plane is 63 inch wing. That would have been very ambitious in 1951 I imagine. And 3.5cc was big too, just after WW2. It was control line: R/C not then viable!
