How many of us are guilty (yes me as well) of having an engine that is not in a model? Just sitting in a draw waiting for the right plane.

 

 

nothing at all wrong with that and quite understandable when supply is uncertain to say the least. If I want a 30 size glow motor now, the only surefire supply I have is my own. They can't be bought new and finding decent second hand is hit and miss.

I'm not in the business of draining and then hoarding supplier's stock of spares, but if an opportunity arises to acquire spare for engines I run which I know are our of production, and if I have the readies, I take it.

After all when shops sell up stock someone has to buy it or it ends up in a skip

And the worst of it is that - particularly for i.c. engine devotees - there will be far fewer secondhand engines in the years ahead beause the supply of new stock is diminishing now.......
