I was at the field today between 14:00 & 15:00 all on my own , good flying too. There is a dead sheep along the fence line towards the gate from the pits, I saw the farmer so reported this to her. I hope no one had plans for a BBQ Smile .

You could be right David
Sad isn't it.
It took me a bit of hunting round in google
starting with "target drone"
"denny"
"2 cylinder"
then it said marilyn monroe

I showed it Auntie Gladys
Immediate answer without the questions
"Marilyn Monroe"
Fashion model, Photographer, Holywood Used to be Norma Jeane Baker
Remember, you say "Yes Dear" up to a maximum of 3 per day.

Would have been quicker ......................to ask her. Then I could have finish the Heli.

Yeh. Thanks Leigh
You've seen it !
Makes people deaf too.
It's for when the weather's bad.
Particularly when I know you lot are getting drenched or blown away.

Anyway back to Marilyn in 1944
Found a bit more info
"Norma Jeane, while working in a factory inspecting parachutes in 1944, was photographed by the Army as a promotion to show women on the assembly line contributing to the war effort."

The target drone photo must have been another promotion.
Surprised me that they had drones even then. "Forsters Spark ignition" ..??
Wonder what the radios were like ?

For anyone that's interested a bit more about the engine in the photo.
It really has aroused my curiousity.
What's it got to do with model aircraft. Well a lot
Read on
Brian gave the clue .............it being associated with Radioplanes.
It is part of a whole series of engines developed just for target drones by manufacturer Rightson's in late 30's. They produced a range of singles, flat twins and flat four cylinder two stroke engines.
Some even had contra-rotating propellors. These proved to be no improvement.

The one in the photo looks like the single rotation flat twin Rightson 2-S-45 20HP

It more or less became the standard engine design for target drones even to modern times

Have a look at
http://www.ctie.monash.edu.au/hargrave/radioplane_engines2.html

There's all sorts of info about these beasts

It intrigues me the inginuity people had in those days. Long before I was even thought of.

So thanks Brian
Very interesting item
