Default what kind of plane and engine is it

I came across a plane (about 20 yrs. old ) It is sterafome, jet like looking, and has an OLD large reciever. Not like todays recievers. It has a servo for the rudder, and sever for the elavater and one for the throttle. No airalons. The enging look like new but no muffler. Do thet still make this engine? if so, where can I get a muffler for it? Would like to ude engine on a different plane.
If anyone knows of this engine and can help me out, please send info to me at
rwhuff@bellsouth.net
Thank you so much

Sorry, after I checked my question, I saw I did not mention the make of engine.
It has a .61 glow engine. It has H B 61 on the cylinder. I was mostly interested in finding out about the engine. Are they still making this engine? I have never heard of it. I have heard of K&B engines, but not HB engines. I need a muffler for it and then will test run it.
As far as a pic of plane, I got to figure out how to post one on this post. Ahh, help on this?
Thanks

H B motors came from Germany.
MECOA might sell them here.

Hi Tall,
Checked out the site you gave me and yes, they do have mufflers for the HB engine.
Many thanks.
Bob

Hi
Ive been working 16 hrs a day for two weeks and have not had time for a pic. Hopefully later I can. I do believe it is a drone the army used as the engine had been made my HB from Germany and the web site states that thousands were made for drones for the army. The guy I got it from got it from an army post. Sound about right? Well just got home after 16 hours and must sleep for about 4 hours and go back to work 16 hrs. I'll keep up with you all. Thanks
