Canadian rarity

These are not common at all but I have 3 now. #1 prestine #2 excellent #3 junk.
Here is the best one which is actually new old stock that hasn't even seen the light of day in years.
I don't believe the box was ever opened again after the manufacturer closed it.
I had quite a time getting the lid off and the box is also the strongest box made that I have ever seen. Made out in B.C. back in the 40's.

Frank has a little more history on these engines than I do but this one is from 1946 which was a huge year for all sorts of model engine manufacturers all over the world.
