Concerning the model engines, maybe the Cox 045 O-Forty-Five manufactured in 1949 ?!?

Have you test run the engine yet? What plane are you going to put it in.
I can see it looking good on several airplanes.

Hey Earl, no plans on running this engine. I actually had 2 and was going to run one of them but a buddy wanted one so I sold it to him.

Anybody knows if Super Tigre is still in business as Super Tigre? Not as a clone. Just curiosity. I suppose they are no longer in Italy.
