I haven't seen a blue needle valve cap before and the Cox Handbook shows that only black and red ones were offered. Did Cox ever produce blue ones or could this be aftermarket or something?

Sopwith Camel maybe?  Blue & Yellow model.  Pictures usually show a blue extended needle

I could not find a picture of a Cox Plane that has a Blue Cap on the Needle Valve. I checked my Crusader, Chipmunk and others because it did look familiar. I know I have a somewhat rare "Blue Backplate", so I looked around thru some of  my "stuff":

And LOOK what I found:

Maybe I should just switch the NV's, so the Blue Backplate has the Blue cap? ?

I don't believe the needles will interchange= coarse verses fine thread.
The cap itself should swap over.
