I am searching for information/ads/pics/brochures of a Cox trainer I had in the early 1960s.  It was not a scale aircraft like a PT-19,.. it was a purpose-built trainer.  It was blue and yellow.  The wing was held on with rubber bands.  The engine mount was adjustable to move the engine from angled down (beginner) to angled level (advanced).  The engine was 049 Babe Bee.  I don't remember the name of the aircraft.  I learned a lot from flying it and I taught several kids how to fly C/L with it.  Thanks for any help.

Hi, and welcome Smile

Could it be The Thimble Drome TD-4? Some pictures here:

One of our forum members re-created the model in balsa, let’s see if I can find that discussion.

Edit. Here it is, a TD-4 replica by Batjac:

Welcome Gyrobob and thanks Kari. I reviewed and reread Mark's 2014-16 thread and massively enjoyed it. One of the first threads that I commented on.

Same plane Gyrobob?
