    Nice find in the bottom of a box

    I went to an estate auction yesterday . Stuff was pretty expensive . Towards the end I decided to poke around a box of ceiling lights that was under a table and I spotted a model engine in the bottom - I covered it up and asked the runner to put it up , he said "Sure" . I got the box for $5

    The engine is brand new never been used - I just put it on Ebay.

    Great score! That looks like a 60 or 65 cc. K&B is a good brand too, in fact you used to be able to send them to a certain hacker that could tweak them for just a bit more performance. This involved the exhaust, rather than the cylinder.

    Now you'll have to learn to build and fly model planes.

    I love getting boxes like that at auctions--its always best to stay until the end of the auction if you can, things get pretty cheap at the end because everyone has run out of money . I've scored some big time goodies like that.
    Hope you make a nice profit, Mojjax!!
