Yes, it's that time of year again! Another year is just about over and that means two Ex Model Engines Black Lynx .049 engines need to go to a new home!

submit the next
       COX ENGINE of the MONTH!
   and have a chance to win a Black Lynx .049 Engine from Ex Model Engines!
   CLICK HERE FOR MORE INFO
   


     Rules: You may post *one (1) picture of an engine or a group of engines that are alike (for example: a collection of Space Bug Jr.s that feature each color tank). The engine must be a Cox engine, it can be stock or parts built. Cox engines using aftermarket or handmade parts and multi-cylinder engines are allowed as long as they feature Cox made crankcase(s) and cylinder(s). Although proof isn't required, engines that are built using aftermarket or handmade parts have to be able to run. A good example of a non-running homemade engine that wouldn't qualify for this contest is found HERE. Disassembled engines are allowed as long as all parts are visible and the engine is in running condition when assembled.

If you are unsure if your picture qualifies, feel free to contact the administrator with questions.

     * You may post multiple "pictures" as long as they are all joined together in one picture. (This is done in image editing software before uploading)

MAIN POINTS
•One picture
•Picture shall be of one engine or engines that are alike (a Babe Bee and a Tee Dee .049 together would NOT qualify)
•Must be a Cox Engine
•Engines using aftermarket or handmade parts must feature Cox made crankcase(s) and cylinder(s)
•Engine must be able to run

Optional Caption
Along with your picture you may include a caption that describes or explains the picture. The caption should include the name and displacement of the engine. The caption has to be short as if you picture wins, it will be posted under the picture in the sidebar. If you do not include a caption, one will be thought up for you.


     After 5 days, the first 10 pictures will be moved to another topic to be voted on by other members. The winner will have their engine displayed on the sidebar of the forum and forever listed on the past winners page.

     Looking forward to see what you guys come up with! Good Luck!

I think that that is the 10 entries and another difficult choice to make.

Thanks Mark, silkspan, dope, preceded by lots of sanding. From pictures of your ships, I think you know the drill

lol, yep...i'll never forget my second trip to the Nats, flying intermediate. Don't know how may hours i spent on the plane, sanding, sanding, sanding, turned out really nice, but when it came to the  appearance judging, it was well back from where i thought it should be. Later i caught up with the 'legendary' judge and told him what plane i had and ask him what i needed to do to become better, he replied "don't use Monokote" ...I was stunned for a second and replied that it was painted, to which he said "oh, it was?" as he walked away!
At first i was kinda PO'd, but then realized he probably didn't look that close and mistook it for plastic covering, which made me feel pretty good...sorta.

Mark, subjectivity of appearance judging reminds me of the young female beauty pageants. Oft, not the most pretty girl is selected. I remember some time back reading in a model magazine, an opinion article on CL that described the strange subjectivity of CL judging. One flyer had gone through the trouble of decorating his WW2 aircraft in non-gloss drab paint and various simulated worn paint areas exposing aluminum caused by panel removal and installation, personnel walking along wing areas, flight paint erosion, weathering, exhaust soot after engine exhaust stacks and carbon soot around gun ports. It was a beautiful job, but was downgraded because it did not have the glossy finish preferred by the judges.

I thought it odd they would consider your job as Monokoted. I gather that the winners know what the judges expect, and build to the judges liking versus best quality.

Yep, it was very odd, i can only guess that they didn't really looked at it and likely assumed since it was 'Intermediate' class that it was plastic. I thought it was an interesting story.
And yes, i've heard it from several that as a rule a shinny finish is better than dull and that beauty is in the eye of the beholder and nobody is perfect.
