Merco Engines

The idea for this page originated when Ian Russell suggested that I should host his article on the history of Merco Engines from 'Model Engine News' (reproduced below) so that it could be available to a wider audience. This led to the idea of using all available data and listing it in chronological order.
Further contributions that can add useful information re the history of these motors are welcome.
