Any time now.  Posted this on the Cox Engines because everybody clicks in here....

And the guess whats hiding in there winner is.................................. Sandca16
And the guess whats hiding in there winner is.................................. Sandca17

And the winner is ME, I love this thing, and roddie.  He had it out of the gate. Model, displacement, full description and date close enough.

And the guess whats hiding in there winner is.................................. Sandca18

According to my educated Enya eye it was, is now, and always will be a sandcast Enya .29.  Only other possibility was the sandcast Enya  .19.  The giveaway was the larger top separation between the fins and the head.  Also the spring needle, the .19's needle is solid wire.

But..........I can't get to the engine.

This plane is all formed wood, hollow wood.  The sellers poor pictures indicated a foam model, he gave no information.  When I opened it I thought plastic.

The cowl is wood and there is no effective way to remove it without breaking something. But I will try.

Anyway, everybody that took the time to offer a guess in my original thread gets an engine.  Overseas too.  Just PM me your address.  roddie gets two the pumper .60 which he will probably never use, but may be fun to set up and run.  My goal, but I never did, and an engine that he might actually like.

Going to see if I can find an OS for Ken so he will know what they actually look like.  Smile  I think Ken was pulling our collective legs.  If anyone here knows engines, it's Ken.  

Remember, if you made a guess PM me your address, Chancey, Rod, and Dirk too.  

Thanks for the fun.........  Bob

Wow is all I can come up with at this moment. You say it is a .29? I don't think I would have ever guess it to be as big as that due to the size of the model. What is the wingspan on that thing, hence why saying it was a smaller engine. Now for a couple of other questions to tickle your brain...... First question. In the second last picture you posted of the tail assembly and the rudder laying down. What on earth is the silver appearing substance in the far side of the fuselage, or does it just appear that way? To me personally, it looks like a silver colored silicone caulking. Now for the second question, and one I believe you will have a very good answer for as you are the restoration expert here. Very Happy I am assuming you do plan on fixing it up some. But the question is regarding the cleaning of it. Being balsa and very dirty and old, what methods do you use to clean something like this up? As well as what materials or chemicals do you use? I ask as the Lil Wizard I picked up was dirty. I used windshield washer fluid to clean it, but there is still some residue left on it that will not come off. It is not a huge deal to me, but would personally like to clean it up some more if possible before putting it back up in the air. I will be watching the ressurection! Thanks for your time.

It's tail weight lead Chancey, heavy to offset the very heavy sand cast .29.

It isn't balsa, but I could be wrong.  I'm thinking bass wood.  I thump on the wing and it's solid and hollow no give like balsa.  Very little structure under there I would guess. The wing tips are things of beauty.  

If anyone has a clue as to it's origin, let me know.  I have questioned the seller but don't expect much.

And the guess whats hiding in there winner is.................................. Sandca19

Oh yeah,  It's 28" wing by 21".  

Solid, wing does not separate.  I think it's home made by someone that knew what he was doing.

Edit add... Not balsa yet the model is quite light.

Cedar?

Cedar can be surprisingly light and is readily available.

I think so Phil. looks and smells like cedar, a little toxic smell though after all these years.

Someone over on RC Groups thinks it might be a Berkeley kit popular in the 40's/50's. Maybe so but I couldn't find anything on it.

Yeah Eric, ya snooze ya loose.....Smile. I thought you would be all over it.

It kinda looks like a T-28, and Berkeley did make a T-28 kit in the 50's, 30 1/2" span, but it has a built-up wing not solid.

I managed to peek in thought this crack and verify that it is indeed a .29.

And the guess whats hiding in there winner is.................................. T-28_c11

Somewhat disappointing for me as I was holding out hope for some exotic sand cast Enya like a .35 or .36. They made both later but die cast not sand cast.

Hmmm. Now I am going to go look at the differences between die cast and sand cast engines. Is one more prefferable over the other due to rarity, or does one perform better than the other?

I'm not a student of either but for me sand cast engines are more collectible.   Sand castings are rough similar to lost wax.  Die cast much cleaner with better detail.
