Hi John, fabulous to see these old racing engine's. I happen to own an A. F. Lee .15 engine the same as in your picture's. Can you tell me who A. F. Lee was? I know of Clarence Lee, but not A.f. Lee. I have another beautiful engine A.f. Keep made, a 3.5cc diesel engine. I would really appreciate any help with information on the engine builder and when they were produced as they look awesome. Thanking you in advance, kind regards, Paul.

Hi John, I love your ET photographs. Any chance of you giving me permission to use one of the Eta 1.5cc engine in my Aeromodeller magazine monthly column?

Hi John. I read on your posting about ETA instruments that you are interested in the three beam scale. Well I have one if you want to see it?

Really pleased to see your Elf King John. Bought one one on Ebay a couple of years ago and only very recently found out what model it is! :) Goes well on a F.I. Frog 150. Need to fly it more! Do you know if a plan exists for the model? Cheers, Rob.

Thanks John for the information on Ken Bedford and the wonderful photographs.
I have an ETA 15 2.5cc engine and have lost the needle valve (needle part only). The engine was last started 30 years ago. I see that there are a number of these needle valves in the photographs of the engine parts belonging to Miles Patience. Could you pass on my e-mail address to him or contact me with his e-mail address and I may be able to purchase the part from him.
Kind regards,
Tony Lynam

I am a born again aeromodeller now aged 65. It has been just wonderful looking through the photos and reading the comments from a time when I was first embroiled in this wonderful hobby. I flew mainly combat with the Heanor DMAC (including Vernon Hunt, who was at the same school as me) but I was never much good at it. I dabbled a little with team race at the time (not much good at that either).

Should have got back to you John but somehow lost the email. Was trying to find out about the New Zealand connection regarding the Bedford brothers. I am a keen vintage engine collector and also make vintage replica motors. My main projects have been vintage side port diesels but have also made a four stroke and recently completed a vintage spark ignition motor.

I am very keen to find some information on the Bedford brothers. The historical account tells me that their father left New Zealand with two very young sons-moving to England. I am interested to know if the boys were NZ born or English.

Hi John,
This may seem a bit odd but i'm trying to help a friend of mine find his dad in New Zealand, I googled his name "Ian Mander" and found your page of engine schematics photographed by an Ian Mander that had emigrated to new zealand. The last my friend, Sebastion Mander, knew of him he was living in Cranfield, Beds. He is a model engineer ang keen model plane enthuisist. Please get back to me if you see this,, even if i got the wrong person.
