Collector Engines.

       Remove this ad - become a site supporter!
Hello to everyone, more especially those interested in Collecting/or User collector's
I have been around the block a few times, starting into modelling when I was Ten yrs old. I am now past 74 1/2 yrs, still young. That's what being a Modeller does for you.
I have been involved in all facets of the hobby over the yrs, Control line, Free flight, Wakefield Rubber, Gliders ,etc, etc.
I have been a collector, user, of Spark ignition, Diesels, Co2, Big, small gas etc.
At one time, I had an engine collection , that did not leave much to be desired. You name it, I probably had one.?. In all the above catagories.
Now to my point. Believe me, the above is not a bragging session, but my kinda way to enquire if thier is any interest out there, for any "Old Timer -Free flight,Control Line, Glo- Engines " :
I have since sold/traded, many of my engines. BUT, I have a Matched set of original "Forster" Engines. still with me. These are the front rotory valve types. .29 Ringed, .31 Ringed, and .35 Lapped. Circa 1950's. All brand new in the boxes, never run at all. Anyone (Serious people only please) that is interested , I am about to put them for sale. At almost 75yrs,I will put the money to my present needs, into large scale types, Gas, etc.
Please pm me, or call 705-522-5346. Many Thanks Dennis.

Lots of us...

There are quite a few collectors in Canada, I was one for awhile as well, specialising in diesels. I am down to my last dozen or so (not for sale until I croak, wife will need the money!), most sold some years ago.

Anyone know if MECA is still operating?

Yes, MECA is still in operation. I am a member. Like you Ty I enjoy collecting diesels. Although they are not as plentiful as glow engines. None the less I do run across them. Sounds like nice engines you have Dennis. Hope you have success selling them.

Cheers ... Frank
