I wouldn’t be surprised if new engine releases don’t turn much of a profit. Perhaps it does, but the time and cost involved can quickly get expensive. I wonder if one could place a special order of their choosing with parts readily on hand?

I thought batches were sent to the anodized and then to the engraver. I think they are still selling the last of the Copper Head engines. 2 years ROI probably doesn’t make sense. The other issue is the remaining parts stock might be nearing the end.

I have SN002 of every limited edition run. If another is made I’m in for #002 Smile

4 years ago, there were all sorts of crankcase colors, engines being sold that were all colors of the spectrum. They were pretty, yes, but color alone wasn't enough to make me to desire them.

OS came out with blue metallic painted (powder coated?) LA engines. That only lasted for a couple years or less, then were sold there after without the paint.

Could be wrong, but seems the colors are of more value due to the limited production run, they will be rarer.

To each his own; however, I think the modeling community overall is less into engine colors and more into their performance, fuel economy, etc. Once in the air, you don't know the engine color.

Some may like the color because on a plane with an exposed engine (say without cowl or with sheet cheek cowls), the color is an art form that can compliment the rest of the airplane coordinating colors.
But, that's just my opinion and not necessarily the rest of the community's. Tired w/ Coffee Read Popcorn lol!

I wonder who has the number #1 and #100 of these special run engines.
I have #88 and #99 of all these.
A bit itchy hand to get another copper head from left over stock (may be random number).
Looks like only 5 of those left.
