Observations:-
The Frog 1.5 is an easy to use small diesel engine. Frog has a good name and they have been producing fine engines for years. It was a big company based in London England where they produced a lot of things, including  many toys as well as a line of fine model engines.  FROG actually stands for: "Flies right off the ground".
