Wow Eric, It's nice to have friends.

Everything in that box is wonderful, especially that Cox Airacobra.  

Enjoy, enjoy, enjoy but I worry about you and Rusty with Florence approaching.  PT-19 weekend may not be so nice.

Bob

I'm confused by the Cosmic Wind. Says Testors on the fin but looks like a Cox engine.

Nice collection. Lucky you have cheaper shipping than to me.

So which is it, Cox or Testors? Sticker on the fin sure looks like Testors to me, but it is blurry. Testors did make a bigger version but both Testors and Cox made near-identical small versions.

Nice P-51 there. I got one of those a couple years ago from someone up here, and a needle from a fellow member on here for it. However, teh silver was mostly missing so the guy I got it from painted it blue, which was also peeling, so I used a bunch of brake cleaner and soaked it and used a toothbrush to scrub it down. I got 95% off, so now I just have a yellow-ish model. I will again look into painting it, properly.... The cracked canopy doesn't bother me, so I will just leave it as it is.

The brake cleaner did a good job of removing the paint. Now, it does look a little odd molded in bright yellow, unless you were to make it into a pylon racer. Yes, painted silver will make it look more respectable. I don't remember too much on those aircraft. I think that it wasn't a true chrome but a factory painted silver (to keep costs down).

You might be able to clean up the slightly fogged canopy with this:

Somebody hacked it up.

I posted a video of Bill Netzband a week or two ago, who goes into detail about the Testors Fly'em, i think it was part two.

Testors sold the molds to Tyco, who ended up selling to Cox.

Thanks for the informative history on these aircraft, and clarifying the original finish on the P-51, Mark. Thumbs Up

Thanks for the link, however, it is not fogged, it is broken. I guess one could say it looks like it was 'shot out' in battle.... Shocked
