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.

Sorry, just saw this post.

We are still selling the last of the Copperheads and are looking into making another LE engine. The problem is consistent anodizing between five parts that may not be of the same alloy. We are looking at neon green or neon yellow but it will a while before we get samples from an anodizer.

#1 is in our house collection and # 100 always went to a really good customer who has spent over $25,000 with us over the years. Unfortunately the gent, who was in his 80's, passed away recently. His widow has offered to sell us his complete Cox collection, including the five #100 engines but, again, it will be some time before she is ready to deal with this.

Aung has the "lucky 88"; very symbolic in Asia sunny

Pre-empting the obvious question, if we end up with the collection, we will likely bundle all five of the #100 for $995 or thereabouts.

That would make sense.  Not only does that cover the USA United States , but also Australia Australia , New Zealand, England United Kingdom , France France and numerous others.  Unfortunately for Bernie, it doesn't include Canada  Canada Day Flag but maybe he can lobby his government for a change.  Hang on, the French flag can cover them, right?

And Russia, makers of MDS Pro and Northern Velocity (Norvel) engines; also Ural sidecar motorcycles, and many of the aircraft we modelers scale and build. Yellow and Green with may be a touch of Blue would even work for those who live in Brazil. Or, Black, Red and Gold after the German flag? Smile
Would not the venue of pleasing the eyes rather than country association be the merit? Tired w/ Coffee Read Smoking Eyebrows lol!

Silver anodizing along with other colors would be a unique change. Huh... drunken

But please let me clarify; I'm not really into engine bling and probably wouldn't purchase such an engine, so my comments should be taken lightly. Doh!
