Smile Bulldog Engine, Building a Model, Need Help

Hi All,
I have a couple bulldog engine castings sets that I have started. I am wondering who sold them and if anyone has built one before. They appear to be about 1/4 scale. I do not have plans for these and need some help. Anyone who can help me?

Very Interesting I have been considering freestyling a bulldog engine as i have a 2 1/2 hp in my shed. This is the first i have heard of actual castings for one depending what size it represents I am sure people in the stack would send you pictures and dimensions you could scale down. Could you post some pictures?

JOHN

David Townsend (Townsend Engine Works, Calais, Maine) used to make Bulldog Engines. Unfortunately he passed on a couple years ago. You may have castings that originated from him.

Scooter,
Here are a couple of photos of one Dave "Fuzzy" Townsend had at the Owls Head show, unpainted 2004 & painted 2005. I believe they are the same engine & one of the last he built. I regret that I never bought one. Did not see Fuzzy often but I miss him .... always friendly & willing to help .

I like the unpainted way better then the painted way. Either way it is a good looking model
