Gallery of Model Engines: Designed by Bob Shores                               Back to the gallery Index

This gallery is devoted to the memory of Bob Shores and the engines he designed.

Bob has produced a number of excellent plans and casting sets over the years.  He had thousands of people building his engines. He would take time to take phone calls, answer letters, or e-mail about any of his engines or any other model engine.

He was opinionated and understanding at the same time.

We first corresponded about 5 years ago when I posted a note in SIC Magazine about using propane for engine fuel.  I was told that I should be using gas with 10% WD-40 because it was the only good fuel.

A few years later Bob wanted to start a model engine building club in Florida.  The FAME web site came out of those talks as a way for engine builders every where to have a place to show there work and ask questions.

While I did not always agree with Bob, I truly do miss being able to write him and discuss a problem or questions.   David Kerzel
