Congrats Roddie,
good job.

I will retry next month although am not too much motivated.. Smile

Thanks Andy! That was a CLOSE one. I really owe it to "1/2A NUT". If you look back on the submission thread.. he gave me some "ribbing" for my first posting a pic of the Rare Bear with the engine "cowled-in" to which he commented; "Nice glow-plug pic".. Embarassed Embarassed Embarassed He was right.. it "was" a nice glow-plug pic... Laughing  but this is an engine contest.. and although it was evident that there was a Cox engine in the model.. it wasn't really visible.. (as compared to Crankbndr's Cox Super Chipmunk) so I posted the 2nd pic.. to try to redeem myself.. and never expected it to be chosen... and thought I might have entered too late anyway. I kind of slid-in under the wire.

BTW Jacob... what is a "191"??? EDIT: I found it on Martin Hepperle's page.. It does look similar.. other than the stepped cylinder.

Congratulations Roddie - this month had probably the most well prepared and executed entries in the competition so far. There has been a leap in quality and the number of votes.

All entries were superbly done. Well done all!

Heartily agree with all the above!

STILL wish more members would be inspired to vote in this cool little contest!
We've got better than 16 hundred members, and it only takes a minute or so to check out the more-and-more artful entries...and to punch in a vote for your favorite!

Please consider giving it a shot on the next lap!

I love to show off this photo, I think its one of my best. I took it about 12-15 years ago with my first digital camera, I think it was a 3.0 pixel?

The point being you don't need real elaborate equipment as the typical phone camera today has probably a better lens.

Congrats to the winner!

And Thanks to my voter Very Happy  I used my iPhone 4S to take my contest photo, "The Celestial Passenger". No flash, phone supported on a Lego Duplo block. The setting was pretty much an ad-hoc one. I was trying to take a photo of my Two-Ninety, and the Lunar globe happened to be in the background. I wanted to get the engine just a little higher, and grabbed the 2€ flea-market book about space travelers as it fit the "theme". The whole thing took maybe 5 minutes Smile

Mark, that is a very nice photo, the lighting, position of the engine, focus all spot on. I like the little piece of wood between the drive plate and spinner, I'll do that for my display engines too one of these days.

Yes that's a real nice shot. The camera I use is a dinosaur 2.0 mega-pixel Sony Mavica CD250. Media is a mini-CD-R 193MB disc. I typically shoot with the highest resolution (1600 x 1200). The camera is powered by an "Info-Lithium" battery. Both the battery and charger died a few years ago.. and I found replacements on the cheap online.. as well as a 100/pk. of Mini CD-R's. You won't find those discs in retail outlets.. they were even hard to find when I bought the camera. Sony-Store "Mavica" discs were ridiculously expensive.

Here's the Mavica CD-250

The latest phone-cams are amazing.. for sure. The image-stabilization technology is really what amazes me in today's cameras.

With some non-regular names expressing interest in entering and missing the cut, as much as I enjoy participating, I'm happy to stand down for a while to make room.
My advice is have your entry ready by the end of the month so as soon as the competition is listed, post it and you're in. This last one filled up real quick.

I used to want one of those too. For closeup shooting of engines and builds, 2MP should be plenty for good quality close shots.
