Thanks Rob! My earlier version used a plastic spinner-cone from my Cox Cosmic Wind model. It resembled the full-scale spinner shape.. and looked decent with the bullet-nose cowling that I'd come up with. The Cox spinner was molded in "red".. as was the Cosmic Winds' main-airframe.. so I needed to paint it.. and "white" was chosen.

Cosmic Wind reference-photo of my Cox model's vintage.. circa 1986. I would not buy it "new" for a few years later.. at a department store.

The RTF/U-Control Cosmic wind was originally a Testors model. If I've learned anything about this model.. I believe that Testors made a slightly larger model, powered by their FRV .049 engines.. before offering a smaller (Fly'em?) version.. for their .049 product (reed-valve) engines. This smaller version was licensed to Cox at some point.. with minor changes to facilitate Cox's .049 product (reed-valve) engine.

Cool to be able to talk about designing a subject model for which there are no drawings in the scale I was looking to build. That would be for the 1st annual (2013) CEF C/L Reed Speed contest. It was my 1st year here in the forum.. and member "jpVelo" (Jim Roselle) 1st pitched the idea to the forum. Control Line 1/2A Profi/Proto scale speed size (rules apply) pretty much mirroring the then-current (2013) AMA rules. You gotta' build a (stand-off) scale model of a real aircraft. Many of us chose to model current and past "full-size" RENO RACERS.. actual pylon racing airplanes.. just for the spirit of it.

There weren't any kits for the type of airplane that you needed to compete with.. One thing was certain. It needed to be a small ship.. in proportion to engine displacement.
