Aeromarine Dyna-Jet Pulse Jet Engine Red Head For Model Aircraft - (Hobbyking)

Metal Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc

Sold   

Very rare 21.25 inch long jet engine for model aircraft. There is no box; it appears to either a Dyna-Jet by Aeromarine of Dayton Ohio or a Hobbyking issue - I am not certainly, so please decide for yourself. This came from a huge collection of gas powered aircraft and most likely dates from the late 1950s. Comes with the Champion spark plug and the mounting brackets as shown. From looking at the brackets, it has never been bolted up to a model but I see clamp marks on one of them, so it was probably bench test run. What you see is all that I have; there is no box, no instructions and no accessories.
