A friend of mine came down for the weekend and brought along a couple of engines from his dad's garage. One looks like on old fox .049 off a control line plane, and the other is a NIB Torpedo Engine (stock #506S .29S) glow engine from K&B Manufacturing.

Any idea where I can find out some information on these such as should I use them for paperweights or are they actually worth shipping to someone else for a nominal fee

Thanks for any help you can offer.

Go to eBay and let the bidding loose. You can get real money for almost anything there. And they will pay the shipping, too!

K & B 29S , 1957, Green head. MECA price 40-50 $. E-bay top price 103$. Maybe more NIB.
Fox .o49 , MECA 25-30$, E-bay top price 79$.
Hope this helps ? MAX H.

Thank you very much for the information. This is exactly what I was looking for. Guess I'll sign up to sell on ebay on see if I can offset some of the costs I've been incurring starting up the hobby.
