Kiwi

Another Westbury design but air cooled with overhead valves. This one is 15cc and can be used for stationary, boat or airplane applications. For the latter the flywheel would have to be exchanged for a suitable propeller hub. It is a fairly heavy engine and would probably be unsuitable for airplanes as is. A fun project.

 

The castings kits for the Whippet, Chenery, Kiwi, Seal, Wallaby, Atom Minor, Sealion and some others are available from Working 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.
