Hi all. So today I was out and about and picked up an orphan Cox engine. Sorry I did not take any before pictures as it is now in a bath of nitro, but the engine was surrounded by this cowl, and I am presuming it is from a Cox plane of some type. It is in overall very good condition, with the exception of a few little cracks on top as shown in the picture. They are honestly unseen, as I did not see them until I grabbed the cowl snugly to help remove the spinner. Anyways, if you can identify it, it would be greatly appreciated, and if you need it, please let me know as I have no use for it, and did not want to exactly throw it out. Another quick little thing I will mention about the motor is the starter. It is a spring starter like normal, BUT, the front engages into a weighted flywheel that is also part of the driveplate.

As an fyi. I am applying pressure to the cowl just to raise the cracks for show in the picture.

The only reason I kinda knew what it is was due to Kim exploded one and I was on the lookout for a new one for him. You may shoot him a PM and see if he needs it.

Really beautiful...I only saw them in COX catalogues and never on e. g. eBay. Let alone in reality.

This was the last plastic 'RTF' i owned as a kid, they didn't fly really well. Cox revised it ('73?) by relocating landing gear forward, leadout location and a brass hub only to drop it the following year.

You might throw that cowl on eBay, they're hard to come across as most got destroyed with nose-in landings...

Yep...and they REALLY don't fly well if you're not capable of properly hooking up your lines!

Thank you guys VERY much for steering thix cowl toward me! I promise to double-check my line hook-ups !!!

One of the most successful 190 cubic inch racers . I watched it go in to Lake Erie back in 1977 in Cleveland Ohio . A really slick plane it looked fast just sitting on the ground .

That's a wicked cowl. It'd be worth trying to make vacuum-molds of it, for period 1/2A-scale racer-models.

I remember, Kim. That was a truly disappointing and infuriating way to crack up. Was yours Red and yellow? I thought I remembered differently, like light green. Could have been my medication Lol.

It was the standard Red and Yellow. It the one lap I had to evaluate it, the Rivets seemed more lively than the Super Sport I'd flown years ago, but I'd also traded out it's engine for a more souped up .049. Gonna put one of Bernie's Xtreme engines in it this next time.
