Here we have some more Ronald Valentine diesels. The are also sometimes referred to as Rasant - Fast and Furious.

This is one of the prototypes of the 0.098 cc series. It is similar in appearance to the Super Bee and the Mini Bee.

Then we have the ROVA Rasant MkI prototype that displays the ROVA build that followed.

This engine was manufactured from bar stock. Cylinder, spinner, back plate and drive washer were anodized in dark blue.

Ronald produced a "Plexiglass" version for exhibition. He also ran it!. I wouldn't dare.

It is a little difficult to photograph to best advantage.

We are in contact by email and phone but distance prevents meeting. I have met quite a few engine builders over the years but no one can match the speed and accuracy of Ronald productions. Believe me, just when you think he has reached a model engine engineering limit - he surpasses it!!

When you see the Nano Bee in the below video - the smallest diesel in the world! - after this he went on to produce a vertical twin Nano Bee, then (what I thought was impossible!) a flat twin Nano Bee - I gave up thinking there was a limit!
