Sorry it wasn't what you were hoping for, but it's not without value. Once cleaned up and running well it would make a perfect fit for a Swordsman 18 or a similar sized model.

I think you would enjoy it more as a runner than if you sold it.

Just my thoughts.

Thanks Mark, I'm not familar with any .020 product cars/planes but I don't doubt that they exist.

I might just have cracked the Yahoo code to join your site.     cheers

lol, ok you ask for it:



There were several different versions of the Pitts as well as two versions of the Ryan, Cox also made (mid-late 60's) a .020 Camaro, Pontiac GT, a free flight copter and probably a couple more I'm missing.

I think we had an .020 free-flight copter It looked like one of those early framed uncovered Sikorsky like jobs. Orange/yellow if I recall correctly with large black blades and a prop driven engine mounted between the blades.

You started it and let it go straight up, floated to earth. Was Mark's first painful experience with powered models when the very sharp prop caught his finger and sliced it pretty good. He was about nine or ten at the time and the sight caused him to become a little whoozy. Brought him in the house laid him down and bandaged it up.

Suck it up Son, it won't be your last. But thinking back, maybe it was as I don't recall a similar event ever happening to him again. Pain can be an effective teacher.

I'm assuming that the PT .020 Army Trainer used a tanked engine.. ? Was it ever produced like it's big brother.. with a separate tank? I'm wondering because the "Sky-Copter" has a plastic back-plate.. and maybe Cox experimented with a few plastic back-plates for their airplanes, like the .049's "horseshoe".. only smaller? The cars are a new one on me.. Shocked I'd love to see the .020 car engine! Do you have any images of the Camaro?

Wow! cool! Cool I wonder if a pair of slicks would load the engine down too much? I had a feeling that a mint example might bring some dough.. I'd never heard of this model before.

EDIT: Did they ever make a heat-sink/head-clamp for the .020?

Click on this link and then the Cox section, there's some great photos. Larry is a big time collector!

No, I don't think Cox ever made a .020 heat sink.

Clicking on his "Video" link for me resolved the questions - How did the Wen Mac .049 speed control work and on what models was it used.
