Having done a little model combat flying (back when the world was still flat) I have always had a hankering to own a 2.5cc Oliver Tiger (ideally Copeman tuned) of my very own!
 
I was lucky enough to be a member of the (now defunct??) Phoenix Model Aero Club in Dublin at the same time as Stu Holland and Eanna Healy and envied both their skills and their 'Ollies'
 
Wondering has anyone any idea where to pick one up - or where to get my hands on drawings - he said optimistically.

One place to try would be the miniature engine auction at Gildings (www.gildings.co.uk)  in Market Harborough. I am not sure when the next one is, but the internet list usually shows several each year.
The other place to try would be Bartons  www.bamopro.co.uk/ who are dealers.
Hope this helps
