when I was a few years younger I stumbled upon a add in a mag for a model glow engine.

It was before I started as a tool maker apprentice, sounds impressive, a tool maker apprentice.

All not what it would seem, I had taken a job as apprentice panel beater,and the manager decided it would be good for the first year of my life to learn how to operate machines lathes mills and so forth,

So did the years training making all sorts of stuff, adjustable ring spanner, scribing block, eccentric circles and other bits,

Any way being young and getting on with life I had forgotten about the engine, that was until one day I visited a scrap yard and there was this massive lump of aluminium, Duno why but it reminded me of the engine, so I got a lump cutt of and took it home. I couldn't remember the name or where I had seen the engine plans,more years passed until I got a computer, and that's where I stumbled across it once more, so I got the plans and found there were others to, I even went to some engineering shows and came across the original engine, now being displayed by the builders son.

It was the David Parker Vega twin.

Since then I purchased a set of plans for a Matador single and D.Giles

A book on a Maltese Falcon.

And the Bentley BR2.

And the Alex Whittaker Firefly 46.

It has always been a fascinatinon, with the distant memory of the model program on skytv. With the chap who machined his own radial

Must be some folk out there that have made their own

I am tempted to purchase a Laser 180 and fit a Morris motors petrol conversion kit to it, just to see.
