Hi,Thanks for the additional info Terry, seems the engine was an easy to start motor, just a few flicks, says a lot for the build quality.
Eric's build article and plans were in the UK Model Engineer magazine during 1996.
Yes I'm sure they were but originally he had them published in EIM starting in June 1993 onwards, which was his favourite magazine at the time and it was those articles he showed me, I'm unsure as to how ME got the rights as there was a lot of rivalry between the two publishers before EIM was sold to Warners, I was remonstrated with by the then editor of ME when I mentioned an exhibition sponsored by EIM. Eric never mentioned the ME series to me even though we were friends at the time. By the way, the engine was based on the De Havilland Cirrus engine.
Stay safe and healthy,
