News From Sweden

New 12 July, 1999


Our Swedish correspondent, Leif Åhman has provided us with some new photos taken at a modeler's show on Ålleberg Sweden (yes on, because Ålleberg is a small mountain) earlier this year. First is a Stirling powered model boat and a model auto, both approximately 4 feet long. This latter model is, we agree, outside the usual scope of our pages. But we think you will agree that even an internal combustion engine that looks this fine deserves a place in the sun! So, without further ado, the photos. (as usual, click on the small photos for an enlarged view)

The engine of this model auto was featured on the cover of Strictly I.C. earlier this year.
