Ok, so the two terms do not not fit together in our manly world, so maybe "attractive".

In another thread i mentioned that I thought my blue anodized OS LA-40 was pretty and mentioned the Evolution and Holland engines as pretty too. Got the Hollands, but not the Evolution so I visited Mother ebay and found one at a reasonable cost. I believe the manufacturer of these has gone out of business.

Yes.....attractive. Sellers photos.

Some of my Hollands, Tossed in a sandcast Enya .19 too. Might be a bit prejudiced about that one.

If you have a contender, I would like to see it.

Can't dispute those. Beautiful!

Some of my more attractive Cox engines. Jason may note the mount on the diesel.

"Pretty" engines P1011538
"Pretty" engines P1011537

But, I have always been attracted to the Hollands, maybe it's the low profile.

The Evolutions have always enjoyed good reviews Ron, especially on RCG.

My nomination for most ugly Cox.

Made up from a batch of badly anodized parts that Bernie was offering last year at a discount, plus a plastic back-plate.  I did three or four of these.

All great examples especially Jason's Gold TD's and Sosam's Irvines. But it's still the Evo 40 that winds my clock.

Some would say the prettiest engine is the one that runs, Wen Mac or not.

I love the contour of COX cylinders that resemble the Harley Davidson engines. A very characteristic design that puts COX into the lead position in my 2stroker evaluation.

Out of 4 strokers I like OS MaxFS engines the most.

Nice Andras, now that I have ran a few OS engines I will never consider them second to Enya's again.  Kind of a thing with me back when I was collecting Enya's.  But, I'm still an Enya guy.

"Pretty" engines P1011541


But, this is about pretty engines guys, color, snap and lot's of it.  Ya ever see a Hollywood star without her makeup?   Not pretty!

I agree, Bob, makeup counts a lot...maybe except for Diane Lane who is beautiful even without makeup..

But back to the OS Max, so powerful and dependable. I run it in my Denight 50 and gives me plenty of fun..the one on the left, displayed with a Pitts special skeleton of a young friend who came to see me fly the Denight a week ago..

Louie, this could be the beginning of a long friendship.

Final scene in the movie Casablanca.

Evolution.  Not as pretty, but I need something to disassemble and play around with.  Totally unfamiliar with these.  ebay for $35 and make an offer.  Offer of $30 accepted.  Educational if nothing else.  I don't even know what displacement it is.  Only hobby item among sellers long list of auctions.  

The new Enya obscession. Maybe.......................

"Pretty" engines Ebay_e10

And sosam, Cox did put out some pretty engines.  I love that Olympic .15 and everyone's favorite the RR-1.  I had the plain jane version of the Sportsman.

Older thread, but a goodie.

Nice picture Fred, colorful and well arrainged.  

X2 on the plumbed Morton radial.  You ever see a B-29 or B-17 engine with the cowlings off...........beautiful in it's complexity.

Oh, i sorta gave up on the Evolutions, obscession stopped at three.  But I didn't have to go far to snap a picture, raise up a foot or two.  i keep them close where I can see them, but never took one apart.

"Pretty" engines P1012385

And - Oh X2, I couldn't stand the poorly anodized "nominated most ugly engine" pictured above, so I redid the cylinder. Still ugly, but not so. Still has pitting and tool marks but at least it's - less ugly.
