Thanks John.
That looks like the Picador engine in Australia that was on thevincent.com a while ago.

The launch pad photo in the foreground may just be enlarged from the book - I will ask further.

A related item is what looks like an attempt to use Picador engine photo as the basis for a fake US postage stamp - which would probably be an offence somewhere.
One of the USA owners may comment?

Wonder what the background to that is?
