submit the next
COX ENGINE of the MONTH!
and have a chance to win a Black Lynx .049 Engine from Ex Model Engines!
CLICK HERE FOR MORE INFO


Rules: You may post *one (1) picture of an engine or a group of engines that are alike (for example: a collection of Space Bug Jr.s that feature each color tank). The engine must be a Cox engine, it can be stock or parts built. Cox engines using aftermarket or handmade parts and multi-cylinder engines are allowed as long as they feature Cox made crankcase(s) and cylinder(s). Although proof isn't required, engines that are built using aftermarket or handmade parts have to be able to run. A good example of a non-running homemade engine that wouldn't qualify for this contest is found HERE. Disassembled engines are allowed as long as all parts are visible and the engine is in running condition when assembled.

If you are unsure if your picture qualifies, feel free to contact the administrator with questions.

* You may post multiple "pictures" as long as they are all joined together in one picture. (This is done in image editing software before uploading)

MAIN POINTS
•One picture
•Picture shall be of one engine or engines that are alike (a Babe Bee and a Tee Dee .049 together would NOT qualify)
•Must be a Cox Engine
•Engines using aftermarket or handmade parts must feature Cox made crankcase(s) and cylinder(s)
•Engine must be able to run

Optional Caption
Along with your picture you may include a caption that describes or explains the picture. The caption should include the name and displacement of the engine. The caption has to be short as if you picture wins, it will be posted under the picture in the sidebar. If you do not include a caption, one will be thought up for you.


After 5 days, the first 10 pictures will be moved to another topic to be voted on by other members. The winner will have their engine displayed on the sidebar of the forum and forever listed on the past winners page.

Looking forward to see what you guys come up with! Good Luck!

Yes, both are Babe Bees, I think from the Estes era, no groove for the starter spring on the base of the cylinder on either one of them. One on the left is in original configuration, the other has the tank extension and a muffler that I got in a box of parts. I also replaced the plastic backplate with a metal one and the tank bowl is old style BB with the smaller venturi to match the Kavan one...

Good point Smile Same model as a base but the other one has some accessories. I have no problem if it is not considered a Babe Bee any more, I can withdraw the pic and either enter another or skip this month.

I hope you all like my plank-wing twin-engined ultra-robust combat model the engines are attached to lol!
