Default Ihc Famous & R&v Scale Models

Hello i'm looking at buying a couple scale model engines and would like to know if anyone out there has one,first is a I.H.C Famous tank cooled 9" flywheel's ,second in a Root & Vandervoort tank cooled,if you have either of these model's could you do me a favor and post some pics and info you can pass on some info like how you run yours,I plan to build my own but feel it would not be bad to get one the runs first,im new to model engines so i'd like to hear what some of you have to say about the engines mentioned.Are there any clips on U TUBE for these engines??

two different R&V Scale Models -->

IHC Famous - I got upright casting with tank cooled here, but he has no website but I got his name & phone (kits still in make) if you wanted his. -

9" you meant Horizontal IHC Famous engine casting? I have been looking for it for while, also I wanted too. - There a model engines show in Ohio in April I hopefully they may have at show. or someone may know from here.
