I used to receive a magazine from a fellow club member who's now deceased. I believe it was a English publication and the book was quite small. I would say probably only 10" tall and 6" wide. Every other page was a ad for diesle engines in which I would see several types I never heard of. I do recall seeing this engine in the ads. Neat stuff and a cool video. I can smell the diesel as I type. Ken

I think that is an excellent video - it demonstrates why "some" of us (very few!) have a passion for diesel engines. That was an excellent portrayal. A mini movie production and well worth the effort.

DC engines were the mainstay for young boys in the 60s. Being able to walk to the local flying field with the plane tucked under your arm and a can of diesel fuel in your pocket. No need for batteries (which were really expensive then!).

All the DC diesel engines are easy starters like this one but I do have a warning (always do and it is one that I ignore). The spring starter works really well but if you look at you will see that the plate that the spring attaches to comes to a point.

This is one size down from the Merlin.

The Dart.

Flick starting one of these with the spring and catch plate attached could be a finger ripping experience! All the starter plates are the same size - this is the Sabre 1.5cc - the smaller the engine the closer you get to the catch plate. I know!

The Bamby was the smallest in the range and this too was a very easy starter

DC Merlin 0,75 cc Bamby10

The only DC engine I would thoroughly recommend anyone not to get is the Bantam. This was DCs answer to Cox for a 0.8cc glow engine. It was built using the components from the Dart. This engine nearly put me off modelling for ever!

This is me freeing up a stuck contra piston using fuel injected into the exhaust port. This engine had been unused for over 35 years. I would just like you to see how close you can get to ripping your fingers on the catch plate.

DC Merlin 0,75 cc Empty Hi Eric, Ken and Sir Ian (English gentlman)

Post  jmcalata Sun Jan 31, 2016 11:47 am

Certanly I love and smell diesel model engines ... but also LOVE  Small Cox Logo  engines

We test a lot of diesel at my youtube channel, american diesel engines like OK and Mc Coy and many english engines, PAW, AM, ME, DC, Frog, Mills, etc.

If you want I will put videos at new topics.

I don´t find stil the small Bamby, is very dificult to find. If you could find one ... tell me.

About DC: I´ve Dart, Sabre, Spitfire, Bantam ...

Well If you want action, I put yesterday the DC Marlin 0,75 cc diesel engine in the Maiden flight of my new Tomboy, the most famous old time arround the world designed by Vic Smeed. I promise to flight soon with original engine Mills 75 P.

I really enjoy your videos. I have flown the 48" Tomboy recently but (dare I say it? Yes I dare!) it was electric and could stay up for 15 - 20 minutes.

I like the old timers and the look of "stick and tissue" jobbies.

As a young lad I flew the 36" tomboy with a Mills .75 (borrowed!). It was free flight, no modern cheap radio for assistance then) and I had help trimming it out. My instructor always told me to fit the rubber bands in a cross like I see you have done.

Being a little "know it all" - I thought it looked nicer with the bands parallel with each other. After about three flights one broke and the wing lifted and after a few seconds broke away. Luckily the fuselage landed tail first and the engine survived.

The Bamby (.15cc) engine is a little gem but not as easy as the other DCs to start. Mainly because of the small propeller and it is easy to flood it. It is a good runner though and starts first flick when hot.

I have two - a shelf queen and a runner.

This is one next to the Dart -.55 cc

I think your videos are little masterpieces - I wish I had the patience to edit video.

Beautiful and very well built plane. Unfortunately it would be too vulnerable on the  field where I fly so I must stick to all-balsa fuselage planes.
