Default New addition (possibly)

Hi all, I may have a new addition to my engine collection. I need to wait for confirmation from the auction house but hopefully all will be well. It looks like quite an unusual design for a gas engine. [IMG][/IMG]

Oh yes so it does. Not a bad looking thing although that aluminium pulley doesn't do it any favours.

What an odd contraption.. did it start life out like this? Or has some added half of another engine to it?

Very interesting.

How novel, a model tandem gas engine, shows a bit of initiative by the builder.

Yes, I'd agree with Centaur's.

Well I have just recieved some bad news. My commission bid I left over a week ago via a third party site did not go through. I thought it was too much to ask to get an engine like this for 320! Fuming is not the word!!

What a shame Did they even attempt to place your bid...

Just a tad optimistic I would have thought, but you never know your luck!

I don't think so, the b id said it was 'pending' until the auction ended.
