I had never seen this dry fuel version.

Do any other Forum Members own this version?

This one was unfired until today.   :)

Two here, unfortunately one was damaged in shipping, but I wouldn’t call it dry fuel, I believe they were made for stereo  ;)

Agree with you Nick. “Dry Fuel” is what was listed on the Tag from the Seller.

A really robust built engine.

Thanks Jan. I have been through Roly’s site many times and hadn’t remembered seeing his. I am sure there are others around, but not many that were unfired (until yesterday). 🤠

Have never run either one, don't even know if I've taken a picture of them yet... And obviously I meant to type Sterno, but the computer changed it to stereo  :D

Spell check.  Arrrgh!

Pull them out and take a picture Nick.  I would like to see if there are any variations.
