Toby, I was able to save both logos from your link as jpeg images. You can then insert them into a word document (see the .pdf below) and then use the handles for each image to size them appropriately to your engine's scale. As Jason said, these can then be printed on clear mylar 8 1/2 x 11 inch sheets available at most office supply places (Avery or similar brand). With careful trimming the mylar film (which isn't totally clear) can be minimized. This is best done with a color laser printer though. Since the sheets are not cheap you maw want to print as many of each logo on a sheet as you can and save them. They will eventually wear over time but I did this on the B&S engine in my avatar and it doesn't look bad at all

Hi Toby, I donít know if you keep up with other posts, but I was at a show recently and was interested to see a fully restored hit and miss engine called an IHC Famous.

I remembered your project so took a couple of pictures for you and your dad.  (In the post on the Orford show.)

When I had another look at your thread, I had obviously remembered the name but not the engine.  Judging by the stickers, it was the same name and company, but obviously a different design.  Perhaps the same name was continued as designs developed over the years.  But if they are of any interest to you I can send you the photos that I have, such as they are.

Hello and thank you.

I will see again with the stickers. Dear without stickers, than with bad ones.

Yes, I have seen the images of the IHC Famous after the reference.
It is, however, a horizontal machine.
We build the IHC Famous Vertical.
But I would also be happy about these pictures.

Attached still the current state of the engines.

Greeting Toby

Toby there are pictures of the vertical engines in those links that have the logo on them where I said as well as on the cooling tank and battery box
