Wow, what a mail day. Audrey Hepburn, Air Classics magazine, The Bridges at Toko-Ri, and an engine variation that I have never seen before but lately has become very popular in my display case. Got to do a deep search on this one!

Thanks pardoner, it has found a good home, and yeah, I brake for Audrey Hepburn a combination of grace and beauty only equaled by the woman I had the good fortune of living with for 59 years.

Thanks again roddie, as I mentioned it will get mounted and etched on the bottom of the mount with your name and date as with many of the things that members here have sent me over the years.  I am blessed well beyond what I deserve.  

And thanks Levent for posting that movie clip.  If you watch carefully the way she handles the bagel?, the bag, and the cup of coffee.  Never a wasted motion or slip of the hand.  Pure magic.  "Cat" plays a roll too, especially in the rain at the end of the movie.  Buddy Ebsen to.

And Eric, I call that my "Yellow stuff" drawer in my tool chest, a hack saw handle handy to hold the engine. Also check out that yellow 1961 Ford taxi in the movie.

I found a mount for roddie's engine.  The "Airfoil" exhaust extension was 180 out so I removed the screws and swapped it around and added a 3/8" nut as a substitute for a propeller, otherwise it's just as roddie sent it to me. But it begs for a propeller maybe to be added later.

The clear plastic mineral mounts are perfect, much better than the clunky mount I made.  They don't distract from the engine.

Enya in their mid-year models offered an airfoil too.

Researching this engine I found it to be one of Ohlsson's first engines (no Rice yet), his model 5 at .56 CI.  I wonder how many still retain their original exhaust extensions.
