Found an old `For Sale` advert from my RC Aircraft days
The Saito 120 powered a 9 foot span Piper Cub with a 21" prop and it was lovely to fly
So docile and forgiving
The Enya 40 was a vintage type of engine, with exposed valve gear
It powered KK Junior 60. and many others
Pictures to follow

I love the dinky engineering that goes into a model 4 stroke engine. It’s a wonder it all hangs together really but I suppose lubrication is not an issue as there always seems to be oil from the fuel everywhere.

Beautiful engineering. Some of the aircraft engines are works of art in themselves, particularly the radial ones. As you say the external valve gear is hypnotic.

I have a brand new in box Enya 35 if anyone ever needs one. Believe its early 70s vintage, never been run.

I still fly RC for my sins, If you don't get any takers, I'm very interested in retro models and that would suit very well
How are you off for Radio gear? I'm sure we could trade or PM your price.

We welcome well written contributions from Website members on almost any aspect of Model Boating with a particular emphasis on practical hints, tips, experience and builds.
In order to maintain a consistent standard and format, all suggestions should first be sent to me by Personal Message for approval in principle. Only a very limited amount of time is available for editing contributions into a suitable format for placing on the website so it is important that the material is well presented, lucid and free from obvious spelling errors. I think it goes without saying that contributions should be illustrated by appropriate photos. I shall be happy to give advice on this.
The Member Contribution area offers space for short informative mini articles which would not normally find a place in Model Boats magazine. It is an opportunity for Website Members to freely share their expertise and experience but I am afraid that virtue is its own reward as there is no budget to offer more material recompense!
I look forward to receiving your suggestions.
