I had gotten pretty heavy into collecting plastic, but have since sold off most except, 35-40...i can't live without?
haven't added any for a year or so, not all Cox some Wen-Mac/Testors, Comet, Aurora even one Gilbert.

That's pretty impressive. I have a couple of questions. I see the Aurora B-25 and the .15 Commanche, but what is the rarest model you have? Also, what is the model to the left of the Rivets? Last question. Where do you keep your family? Smile Thanks, Andy

The truth be known this is not my collection. It belongs to a friend of mine in Texas who is a rarely heard from CEF member.
I use the pictures for shock value when anyone mentions collection size. He is currently selling off a lot of his Cox items including spare plastic and other parts for anything Cox. Hit me up if you're looking for something and I will ask him.

who has the biggest collection of cox engines and plastic factory cars and planes A310_110

Here's what's left of my plastic collection, there probably 12-15 more packed away.
who has the biggest collection of cox engines and plastic factory cars and planes 15296210
The top row are Comet planes, the rarest is the far right, its called a Snark.
Middle row: The all camo p-40 is pretty rare, the Helldiver I've has since 6th grade, the corsair is NIB, but of course I sold box!
Bottom row: Spit and Stuka are restored basket cases as was the TD-1, the yellow TD-3 only needed a scrub! not Shown, Aurora Bonzo, Aurora D-7 (basket), several Testors and Cox that don't fit or make the grade.

Middle row: Rare blue Wen-Mac Cutlass (lol, not Olds) P-38 ('61-'62, you can date Wen-Macs from engine series) Wen-Mac 'Wings' Trainer and 'rare' but not real popular the Testors Skyraider, not to be confused with the Cox version.
Bottom Row: Theses are the planes that I had as a kid and started my 049 engine/RTF hobby, Testors SNJ, Mini Stunt, Rivets, Pennzoil Pitts, Miss America, Early 70's PT-19.

no, i'll probably sell it off or down to one case when I get time, keeping the ones like I had as a kid and maybe the Comets.
That the problem with collecting, when do you stop and what do you do when you're done?

OK...I apologize IN ADVANCE for the Rivets Video !!! I know that it is an atrocity to all those who love RTF's...both the Flying Types AND the Hangar Queens...that it should pay because hooking up a set of flying lines was apparently beyond my technical abilities on that particular day...

According to Cribb's Law an engine lasts 3 years so I have 900 years worth of engines.

300 engines is a nice start, but if you use three each year, then you only have 300 years worth of engines. Doesn't that make you want to go out and buy some more?

Nice collections Jason and Mark, my eyes hurt trying to pick out individuals.

Mark, if you ever decide to sell (rid yourself Santa) of that Skyraider, keep me in mind. My old Navy Squadron flew them.

I'd surf ebay, the Cox version is nicer and probably cheaper, they were made in Navy blue and gray and reintroduced in the 80's.

Cribbs law, now that's funny.

Actually they last longer than 3 yrs. depending on how you fly and what fuel you use.

Cribbs law states:

One engine for use now, one engine if it breaks, one engine for the future.

It's the law of threes... Now that being said Jason can easily hit the 1000 yr mark! Very Happy

I still only have 2 TD .020's and it's irritating me.

Well, it's not the same as an actual pre-owned Mark Boesen, but it will have to do. Sad  How did you ever find a P-47 labeled Skyraider........ I look for them under gas skyraiders to avoid the hundreds of kits out there.

I will join in the bidding probably to be disappointed once again....... Mad

Hey, I just won one.....There has to be at least twenty bucks worth of glow heads there..... I was the only bidder. Just Babe Bees, but nice ones.
