For me it is propellers and prop machine screws in all lengths.

One of those flea market Cox engines was missing the prop machine screw, looked all over, couldn't find one so I ordered every Cox machine screw that Matt had. Later i found an exact original replacement in one of my many nut & bolt containers.

Propellers too, they just disappear. Love those Cox safety tip props, should have ordered a dozen. I have plans for the yellow ones.

Line clips are a biggie. I found one though, it ended up breaking the impeller and totally destroying the drain pump in my washing machine. I try to keep line clips on all my reels and handles. Two weeks ago, another club member asked to borrow my lines and when I handed them to him, he removed the clips and I put them in my pocket. Lesson learned the hard way, drain pump with shipping $120 and 4 hours of aggravation.

I agree Bob. Those props are great. I have a few too and love them. But I can't wait to see what your plans are for them....

My daughter washed the FOB's to her Cadillac, not once but twice.  Expensive to replace but she got lucky, one worked the other didn't.  Mark took it apart and cleaned it, now it works - sometimes.  

It's change for me, I got the cleanest penny's, nickels, and dimes in the neighborhood.

Thinking about an all yellow P-38 Rene, along the Yippie lines but not red.  Want to use mine as an example.  I still have all the original drawings for it from some 50 years ago.  Something I have wanted to do for a long time.

Precedent only in a P-51.
