    I suspect that Eddie Keill's Falcon plans might be on the 'net already.

    Speaking about plans, about this time Charlie Lutman's father owned the Model Shop in Newcastle upon Tyne. He sold a diesel engine. It was way out of my miserable wages then. Can anyone point to drawings or an aged motor, please?

    I can vaguely recall making lots of Model Shop kits in the war and when balsa ( and rubber) became available several MS as Keelbuild, Veron and KK kits.

    Oddly, I was the formal guest of a friend who probably still has lots of stuff.


    I recall him prattling about Mills engines before his massive stroke.

    That's a really smooth runner and at 14cc would be quite powerful. Thanks for sharing.
