Back when I was buying engines by the gross, and bye bye engine wall........

Post  rsv1cox on Mon Feb 19, 2018 11:35 am

I have broken a self-imposed rule.....never again sell any model engines. Just listed these on ebay. No Cox engines included.



I'm not encouraging any of my CEF Buds to bid on these mostly losers, (cause I know there are several ebay Hawks here) but there are a few in there well worth the price of my opening figure. But, should anyone here be foolish enough to bid and win I will send you a couple of guaranteed runners, gratis.

I'm not sure why I'm selling. I got to looking at my engine wall pictured here before and thought - what a bad idea. These were engines that I did not clean (I was swamped for awhile) and just screwed them to 1X2's hung on my loft wall gathering dust. So yesterday I unscrewed them all, culled the best and ebayed the rest. No Cox though. Got them in a box for future cleaning and mounting.







This little Cox caught my attention, a screen-less venturi, thin wall, no marking on the tank and a Wen-Mac Prop.

Bob.... as I accumulated on binges for a while, I ended up with a bunch of crud and a bunch for good stuff...

The one son who I am sure when retired will fondle, run, and nostalgically use some of this stuff is in the will

BUT there is so much STUFF he does not need to even catalog...dispose of or sell

Later this year or early next I am re-purposing the large RV cover into a giant tall airplane shop

I have an over anal inventory of all this stuff in MS Excel that I have started noting sale lots

This last year I slowly liquidate a few engine and kits mostly to guys looking for some item I really was never going to use


jest sayin I hear you

Yeah, It's a tug Fred...I don't need to sell anything, but sometimes the sheer magnitude is overwhelming.

This is the tip of the Iceberg. That is an early picture of my "engine wall", by the time I finished there was no more room on those boards to house even one more engine.

I'm not even going to my Enya's, McCoys, Cox, Hollands, and on and on. I still have boxes of serviceable Testors, OK's, and Wen's. I'm not giving up, just teetering a little. Smile

That RV cover must be huge. Build in the sides and you will have an enormous amount of space that you will want to fill with more stuff. Stuff just happens. Bob...........

Hi there. Could you post a link, so I can see what it is at? I may be interested as I am looking for an old project engine or two to clean up and play with to pass the winter blues, and not brand specific by any means. Please do not take this wrong, I LOVE Cox engines, but I like the odd ugly duckling! And I like small engines. Thank you.

That is an early babe bee with the bright back plate. It may have a 3 piece piston. Can tell without having to take the cylinder off by just removing the tank. If it has an aluminum con rod its a 3 piece piston. It has the wrong glow head on it though.

Thanks Jason, I will take a look.  I did notice the incorrect for the era glow head.  I think it should look more like the one that came on my Cox tether car.



Hmmm, maybe not. Got a picture?

I can't tell. Would there happen to be a Spitfire with the throttle plate anywhere in there?

The Blind Mark

There are a couple of throttled Wen-Macs Mark, one complete except for the needle, however there are needles in some others that could be swapped.  The pull-string does not work. No Royal Spitfires or Spitzys.
