New toy

Prompted by an old friend, I went to the Transport sale at the Apsley Road
sale rooms in Bristol on Tuesday. There were lots of interesting things,
genuine locomotive name plates making tens of thousands & even some model
railway carriages fetching £1,200 for six!
I bid on various IC engine lots, a model Wankel rotary, two small engines, a
Westbury "Centaur" but backed out when I considered they were getting too
expensive. There was only one that I really wanted, a very tidy working
model of an Anzani "Brevete" , a three cylinder "Y" configuration radial. I
paid rather more for it than I'd have liked & was at my limit when the other
bidder stopped - & this prior to the swingeing 19.50% premium plus VAT. Ah
well, it's only money & never going to be worth less, is it?
I've been trawling the net but can find no information about the model. I
think it must be kit built from a small production run as it has a serial
number & the crankcase , covers & cylinder muffs are castings. Any
information anyone can help with will be most welcome. Aspects of the model
suggest it might be thirty or forty years old - but I might be quite wrong,
of course.
If you are going, I'll have it with me on Sunday at the Wessex crank up at
Nunney Catch.
