This engine is a 15cc V-twin designed by Les Chenery. A little more complex design but relatively easy although one would need a milling machine for the 20 degree incluned valves. It could be done on the lathe by builders with more experience. A light and powerful airplane engine which could be made to run on gas or glow.
The castings kits for the Whippet, Chenery, Kiwi, Seal, Wallaby, Atom Minor, Sealion and some others are available from Woking Precision Models, UK. Their website is: www.wokingprecisionmodels.co.uk They are by no means cheap but have a wide range of goodies if one can afford their prices.
