Then  some of the competition models:











I found a 1/6th scale Galloway with the UK suppliers who to date have not got it to run and they are now trying with conventional sparkplug ignition  :shrug:

The Stirling Society had some new engines: 











Which they had arranged for cheap drawings/kits including the difficult to obtain parts.

These boat engines were rather smaller than they first look:

It was on the SMEE stand: It was the one Prof Chaddock was making when he sadly died  :(.

And Forest Classics were doing a couple of engines, and promising more in the future  :cartwheel:













Eric: I had not appreciated how small your bottle engine was until I saw the one on their stand. I made a point of discussing the chilling problem with the traders and they are promising to pass on Jason's advice as to how to solve the potential chilling problem on the castings so that other UK customers don't have the problems you had  ;)

Oh you could have slipped that Woodpecker into your handbag for me. You will have to talk tham into attending Guildford again.

Quite like the Senior from Engineers Emporium as well.
