In the 1959 timeframe
when this edition of Model Aviation was printed, Jetex engines were very popular, likely because the era was really
the dawn of the jet age. Everyone wanted to get in on the act. American Telasco Limited, who I had never heard of prior
to seeing their advertisement here, exploited the craze by producing a wide range of model aircraft and rockets that
were designed specifically for the Jetex engines.
If you are interested, here is a page I have posted with
Jetex information. I also have some boxes of
Jetex fuel pellets available for sale.
