I do a lot of research on pioneering and vintage model engines. In the course of my research, I’ve made friends with many SAM members around the world. The results of my efforts are to be found on my Model Engine Website, where they are avidly read by literally thousands of model engine enthusiasts all over the world.

Jim Walker was really one of a kind. He was a visionary, a showman, an inventor and a passionate promoter of Model Aviation. Whether he was flying his Two-Speed ignition engine Fireball with U-Control or his 10 cent Model 74 Glider, he captivated the crowds and the imagination of a generation of youngsters with his incredible flying skills.
