The choices get harder every month. I wish I could vote for three of them, but I had to go with the Lunar excursion, whoever that was.

I agree with Rusty about making a choice. I missed entry again this month - by the time I get around to it there has been more than ten entries.

I have also noticed the effort that has gone into posing the engines and portraying them nicely rather than my just taking a snapshot of an engine.

Me too. Jacob has been encouraging that for some time. It's engine art. And a lot of it is really good. I love the one with the engine on the box with the Baby Clown. It looks like it's really in the picture. The Golden Bee is good, and so is the strange Tee Dee on the mirror and the pretty pilot. I haven't looked to see who's any of them are. But I'm a space science lover, so the moon shot got it.

Agreed, the entries just keep getting better. I think having Matt sponsor it was a great idea as it has given the contestants incentive to get creative with their photos. Keep them coming! Smile

For me it was a hard choice between #2 and #10. I liked how the Babe Bee was restored to its former glory - not the prettiest photo but you can tell there was a lot of work behind it. Roddie took a really cool angle on his engine that I hadn't yet seen here.

Wow! Thanks so much guys!! I enjoy photography almost (I said almost... Wink ) as much as building models. The engine is from my Rare Bear CEF Reed Speed model. I built it from a new crankcase I had bought almost 3 years ago from "Mini Glow Planes". I needed a "top-end" and a "rear-end"... so I ordered a Tee Dee cylinder/piston and the red "Killer Bee" high-flow back-plate and needle from Cox International. The head is a standard type. Although the engine has run a few times.. there is something amiss. I've never really been an "engine-guy".. but since being a member here at CEF.. I've been learning a lot about how to get better performance from all of you great people.

**VOTE-ON-THE-NEXT-COX-ENGINE-OF-THE-MONTH** (January 2015) 4-2-1411

The first time I ran it on the bench.. it was hard to start.. and hard to keep running once it did start. I was using a uni-flow hard-tank I'd built; plumbed with 1/8" copper tubes.. with small size silicone fuel tubing to the engine. This turned out to be too restrictive for a suction-only fuel feed. I had to solve the problem quick.. because the contest deadline had already been extended. I theorized that switching to a large-size fuel line might lessen the resistance to flow with the reduced vacuum I was dealing with.. I'm guessing; because of that large venturi in the back-plate. The challenge was fitting the larger line on the small barb on the NVA. A compression-sleeve did the trick.. and the engine roared to life! The power was more than anything I'd ever experienced from a reedy!

Here's a photo of how I did the fuel line..

**VOTE-ON-THE-NEXT-COX-ENGINE-OF-THE-MONTH** (January 2015) 3-13-112

I know that most of you have seen the above pics before.. but for the benefit of new members.. it's an easy thing to do.. that just might make a difference in getting your engine to draw fuel better from a tank. The fuel line shown is a size for large engines. The compression-sleeves are merely 1/4" OD alloy-tubing pieces, cut to approx. 1/4" long. I twisted the ends of the fuel tubing into the sleeves.. which reduces the inner diameter of the fuel line small enough to fit tightly on the small size fitting on the NVA.

Here's a couple more close-up shots of the engine..

**VOTE-ON-THE-NEXT-COX-ENGINE-OF-THE-MONTH** (January 2015) 1-25-111

Most digital cameras have a setting for shooting close-ups (Macro). Look for a "flower-shaped" icon in your menu.

**VOTE-ON-THE-NEXT-COX-ENGINE-OF-THE-MONTH** (January 2015) Macro_10

Use this setting.. and you'll be very surprised at how much better your close-ups will be!

Thanks again everyone!!!
