Hi Guys.

Just trawling through the engine suppliers, most OS glow motors are out of stock...... Does anybody know if they have stopped production ?

If they have, then it hasn't been made public, as far as I'm aware they are still in production.

It's probably more likely that international supply chains have been disrupted due to various Covid related issues. A few suppliers are indicating mid-November for new stock.

Spare parts seem to be going the same way, unless it is old stock you can't get it and I know OS 46FX piston - liners are unavailable and have been for some time.

Think this has been the situation with OS since before Covid19.

Wonder if anyone from Ripmax reads this?

No mention of it on the OS Japan website, but they are stopping steam locos

Interestingly they are getting into UAV engines, could end up with some very nice large model engines, flat twin 80cc fourstroke anybody yes

Does RipMax still exist? I heard a rumour that it now consisted of just two people! Sign of the times?

OS46FX piston and liner sets are listed on the website here, priced around £35 plus postage and probably customs charges as well.
