About Us

Jenny & PaulJust Engines was founded in 1991 by Paul and Jenny Landels. Paul was an aero modeller of long standing who had started with control line in his early teens. Having competed in pylon racing in the 70s and 80s Paul was particularly interested in engines and engine performance. The decision to start a business specialising in engines was therefore quite an easy one.

Over the years we have built a reputation for excellent customer service and ‘knowing what we are talking about’ and that ethos continues to this day. We sadly lost Paul in 2006 but his legacy lives on. We pride ourselves on giving courteous and honest advice, prompt service and great products at great prices. We will help you select the best engine and silencer installation to suit your model, as well as advise you on propeller sizes, fuel, plugs and so on. A large number of popular spare parts are kept in stock at all times and we order other spares in on a weekly basis from other distributors, so we can keep your engines running.

A new era

Jenny and AndrewIn April 2011 Andrew White took over the reins from Jenny. He grew up with an interest in models and miniature engineering which was satisfied through a passion for trains, planes and steam engines. He built many models working from a young age in his father’s engineering workshop. He remembers fondly flying control-line planes with Paul.

He then apprenticed to his Father in the family business as a blacksmith and engineer later travelling and getting involved in aid work in Latin America. Andrew is looking forward to the challenge of continuing the high standards set by Jenny, delivering the best in value and service to you our customers and taking Just Engines forward into the future.


It’s nice that we get letters of thanks from our customers – it makes the hard work worthwhile. Some of the kind comments are posted throughout this site – so if you haven’t used us before, you know you can order with confidence. Below is a recently received example.

“Dear Jenny,
A quick e mail to commend you and your team on your excellent service. Whilst living in Britain I enjoyed the benefits of your next day service.

I now live, having retired, some 5000 feet up in the Rhodpe mountains, in the south of Bulgria. On Tuesday 29th of May, I ordered from you, a new ASP engine. On Friday 1st of June, can you imagine my surprise when my post lady arrived bearing my new engine. Amazing, many thanks to you and your team, this will not be my last purchase.

Please feel free to use this most sincere commendation on your website as I am sure it will be of interest to many expats living on distant shores, who may be reluctant to order.

Again, sincere thanks,
Mr D Holmes”
