Woody’ Engines is a spin off from Aero Electric, well known through
out the Hobby for the replacement parts that are offered for most antique
spark ignition model engines.
Woody Bartelt is the founder of both entities and along with several associates
produces the many parts for Aero Electric and arranges the reproduction of
the various engines offered on this site.
Woody has been an avid engine collector for over 45 years. He is the past president of the Model Engine Collectors Association (MECA).
With a background in General Aviation and CEO of Bartelt Aviation it was
easy to transition to model aviation and model engines work after retirement.
If you are looking for a special collector’s engine or just want an
old engine to fool around with, you may well find it here.
It has been Woody’s policy to offer only the finest of original and
reproduction antique engines. The reproductions offered are for the most
part very rare or hard-to-find examples. Like the parts that have been available
through Aero Electric for more than 20 years; all the reproductions are faithful
copies of the original specimen and machined so accurately that the parts
will readily interchange with the original.
Quality is a by-word with all products offered and we guarantee that you
will be satisfied.
