Doh! I knew I thought that picture looked familiar, although members resubmit their pictures multiple months in a row so I usually don't overthink it. I'd prefer members submit new pictures after one has won, but it's not against the rules as they are currently written. Huh...

Sobre la sabiduría y humor del vaquero, hay una broma humorística a mostrar, pero leer mejor aparte de este foro.
Regarding cowboy wisdom and humor, there is a humorous joke to illustrate, but best read apart from this forum. Very Happy

That is why I voted for number 1 because it has not won like number 3 has.
Rules need to be changed. If that engine has won, it cannot win again?

There are plenty of Cox engines out there.
At least wait another year before posting the same engine/photo? Lest we forget by then?

I too like GGs suggestions.

I did not remember this engine had previously one

I will gladly withdraw from this month and concede to engine #1 being the monthly winner

Fred, I figured that you may have not known, because it has been at least 16 months ago. But, there were no rules against before. So, I think that by @Admin 's awareness we may see in future a slight change in rules, so that at least the photos that won will be disallowed for future contests. This may include the monthly winners as well.

Until now, an honest "gentleman's mistake" was made. By clarifying the rules may help to allow for others a chance to give their engine photos a shot, no matter how simple, etc.

I've used Mother's Mag and Aluminum Polish before, but never got a mirror gloss like yours. Very Happy

Censored , do not withdraw, no rules infringement any Very Happy
@Admin may say, "Well that is nice Censored , but let's do it anyway!" Very Happy  I feel no harm done. I believe that good has occurred, and the engine contests will work out even better in the future. Smile

For those who can't wait to win the prized Black Lynx .049, I believe that buying one of these is a real treat to be had. Matt has provided these at a very reasonable price for the performance it provides, perk up that CL proto racer or RC plane. Thumbs Up

You are right, but It's not nice to have these arguments because of Fred's photo. Rule changing arguments can be done without mentioning a forum member's name. Neutral

This is why I started a new thread (did you read it? Huh... ), Fred is one tough dude, war vet, been there, lived to talk about it. I really appreciate Fred's contributions on this forum. He is a good sport, I see no harm done.

Plus, the benefit of keeping this thead going, is that it bumps the thread to the top, so more people can vote! Very Happy

hello guys, as said, no one has violated any rules, if after this, the rules change, then it will be after this.
This vote in particular is one of the most active, because we came with little participation and somehow it seems that more members were interested in participating. That's great.
Let's go ahead and have fun, at least that happens to me.
The truth is that more people are participating and that is good for the forum, therefore for all of us!

Hey guys this forum is all about fun and sincere camaraderie

I never did collect The Prize....and I am the guy that would gift back any prize for increased CEF participation

I am a pure thinker in so much as I tend to believe in the SPIRIT of most rules.... fact is this engine won before...I am 100% OK with another WINNER

That said, I prefer each month Photo essay contest be one well presented photo and no yak yak about it, or any other entry...a pure beauty contest

Fred, this is why I said you are a good sport. I see a lot of the good NCO training in your life, focus on team building and trust. Until the recent nonsense against good military practices, I really loved my time in the service.

It is a beauty contest ... I provided another thread for discussion:

The result is wonderful news for me, I am very happy and I want to express why I feel this way.
You can see a photo, you can see something you like and choose it or discard it, but I want you to know that behind the photo and I speak as an author, I am expressing something wonderful there.
The Cox .010 is an amazingly beautiful Cox piece, the idea of ​​being able to have control of the motor was what made me think over and over how to do it right.
The process had to be something that didn't radically change the engine, and that even if one removed the throttle ring, the cylinder would look nice and healthy, like nothing had been touched there.
It was then that it occurred to me to invent the “false shirt” and I got down to work. It was a process that I thought over and over again before touching the engine, because if something goes wrong it can ruin the engine permanently and it's something I really wouldn't forgive myself for, it's not about the cost but about the feeling, damaging it would do me a lot of damage.
When I got down to business, and definitely removed and modified the original cylinder, I knew it was a NO return trip, so now was the time for no regrets, well the pieces are very small in there, every metal rubs against the cutting tool. It made me sweat, but everything was perfect and even more so when I saw the operating result, I had achieved it, I had control of the engine through a self-made system that did not really alter the original engine, I felt and still feel happy. Believe me folks, it's amazing to play with a Cox .010 and be able to speed it up and slow it down.
For all this, a photo is just a record of an image, but behind that image there is a lot of work that went well. Here in my country there is practically no way to get an extra piece, so taking the risk was important to me.
For all this mentioned above, I want to thank those who voted for my photo, well thank you, it is a way to encourage others to do so and enjoy their engine with throttle control.
Thanks to everyone who participates and makes this forum unique and beautiful!
