  1. Can you please help me to identify these two vintage nitro stock cars. Both have Irvine engines with a big wheel starting device and aluminium baseplate/chassis. Thank you.
  2. Showing my age now but I was around when pounds, shillings and pence was the currency and everyone referred to two old pennies as "tuppence".
  3. @Juggular I live in Westbury Wiltshire a small town population 16,000 on the edge of Salisbury Plain overlooked by the White Horse below. It was carved in the chalk escarpment as a memorial of Alfred the Great's decisive victory over the Danes at Ethandune (Edington) A.D. 878. The length of the Horse is 170 feet.
  4. Oh OK thanks for the clarification. I was a little confused when you mentioned a US penny and I saw that you are located in Cheltenham!
  5. As in title I am trying to identify this tiny electric motor. It appears to have an air or water cooling device attached to it so could it be for an aircraft? It was found with a lot of other vintage RC spares. Any advice appreciated.
