It's most likely a Cox .049 that has been fitted with custom anodized crankcase as Cox did not make them in that color.  A "Golden Bee" has gold anodized crankcase.

Note: the drive plate has not been properly installed on the crank splines (not good).  Needs to be pressed on farther.

Thanks for the info, that's great. That would explain why I could find no orange Cox engines on Google images.

Some drive plates that have been removed and reinstalled several times have worn and will not stay on without a prop. In MOST cases it is because the splines were not carefully aligned when the plate is reinstalled. Also in MOST cases it will not affect operation, but should be checked carefully because it may affect operation.

Sorry, I should have said.. The drive plate is like that as I have taken apart to clean and have not put back together properly yet, it needs pressing back on.

Put a prop on it and tighten all the way until seated. The part will slide onto the splines. Make sure it's lined up before doing so.

a few members here can do anodizing and one of these days I will get set up to do it

That said this looks to me like someone Plated the parts with copper probably planning to chrome plate the parts.

I like the look as it is unique and I bet polishes out real shiny but will soon tarnish

I have seen a LOT of anodized parts and never this color...but I do know that with the right mix of colors it could be done
