    Well you know what they say. Even old dogs can be taught new tricks. With the right scooby snack that is. Lol

    That is just "ALL KINDS" of :cool: right there. And not to mention a "REAL" purpose built electric start system! :too-cool:. Not some aftermarket bolt on failure waiting to happen :cautious:.

    Man you just cannot go wrong with that. It going to tough building the plane and waiting to start that engine and fly the plane.

    Very very sad news.

    (Letter received this evening from Gotz at Vogelsang Aero Scale)

    Hello Robert
    I am back in the office, at few hours at a time as my recovery from surgery permits.
    Daphne is incredibly sorry as she made an honest mistake when she was talking with you.
    I am afraid that we cannot order any Kolm engines at the moment and I can not tell whether this will change in the future, this is an announcement the manufacturer needs to make, it is not mine to make.
    I wish I had better news.
    I would have removed the motors from my site already but again, that would be “an announcement” and that is not mine to make, I need Kolm to make theirs first, out of respect.
    The one 4stroke choice you have is the Valach 120 inline.
    Right now talking comes with it’s difficulties as I am still recovering from surgery.
    I hope to be in better shape later this week, should I call then? Or would you prefer to get the questions rolling per email right away? I am here to assist.
    Thank you and best regards,
    Dr. G

    Call between 9:30AM to 3:30PM EST

    Well, this just simply bites the big one. Not sure now what I am going to do. Maybe order from Kolm direct?

    That is how you power a warbird, not the single cylinder crap hanging out of the bottom of the cowling.

    Dang Buddy,

    That does bite the big one. . . . . .:frown::frown::frown::cryin:. Look on the bright side, you can still get the big red head inline twin for your Mustang and it will still be AWESOME ! ! ! ! ! . . . . :yesss:.

    This is very true. But I have not tossed in the towel yet. I sent an email to Tony Clark Practical Scale and one direct to Kolm Engines. Surely one or the other will respond. If I have to pay a little more to get it here, well...then that is just what I will have to do. Besides, 5000x.19 is only.... another 950 bucks. UGH!!!!

    That sucks, but I belive you are doing the right thing . Either one will be able to help you.

    I have dealt with Tony he was good to deal with.
