Even during the busiest times of my life I have endeavored to maintain some
form of model building activity. This site has been created to help me chronicle
my journey through a lifelong involvement in model aviation, which
all began in Mayo, MD

McCoy .35 Red Head C/L Engine
This McCoy .35 C/L engine is like the one owned by my airplane flying
buddy, Jerry Flynn. He had it given to him, along with a lot of other great engines and kits, by an old guy who was getting out of the hobby.
This was back in the mid-1970s, so a lot of it was only 20 or so years old at the time.
I purchased two McCoy .35 Red Heads on eBay
in the summer of 2007, and one of them is proudly part of my personal nostalgia collection (above photo).
