Model engine identification

I bought a bunch of stuff at an estate sale, including some model engine stuff. Here is the first box. In the two other boxes I see flywheels with Breisch casting marks but I don't see that on anything in box 1. Anyone recognizes it? I will post pucs of the other stuff tomorrow.

Re: Interesting guys on YouTube
