Here is my McCoy .09. It has never been flown while in my possession. I need to find a plane for it. Runs good though. Pain to start.

Some of my Cox CL Engines. One is a Space Bug Jr. Hardly ever run. The other is a Cox Babe Bee with a #2 Cylinder.

Well, since you asked here are my two Doolings.
And that ex Tony Cincotta Taipan is the first of the series with the small width rear bearing. I have one of them (well used but still runs great) and a NIB late gold head with the plastic backplate. You can see how the early version crankcase lines up with the cylinder while the later ones had the crankcase slightly extended for the wider bearing.

Here's a "hen's teeth" engine, a Russian Stass's 42 rear exhaust made in the early 80's and apparently the RE version was made strictly for CL stunt while the SE version was RC. I've never been able to find out anything about the RE version anywhere on the net and no one seems to know anything about them which is why I call it a "hen's teeth" engine . Not withstanding its apparent rarity it flies a stunt trainer I built for my son extremely well, tuned pipe and all .

Wow , thanks ... I never researched the Glows , as I was more interested in the Diesels ..
GB was an interesting individual , I found it strange he never really developed an engine , He simply made something new [ And I dare say usually seemed to be a copy of some other existing design ] , and changes were made out of necessity [ Series 10 to 11 ] same with the 1.5cc TBR D

ill have to check the remaining Gold Tops I have now

Os pet

Hmmm , 3 Small and 3 large on the Gold Tops .. [ Bearings ]

Next up , one of the nicest little engines that could .. The OS PET

What a neat little engine , easy to use , easy to start .. Not the most powerful .09 around but ran well enough .. For a Sunday Flyer motor or a Noob , a great little runner .. Only ever had this one , still in great shape ..

Do you have this book below? There are 200 glossy pages covering every engine made by Gordon (and the .40 by Peter) with full colour photos of every engine and detailed descriptions. It's THE bible for GB . Maris is in our CL club here in Adelaide.

Here's a link to a post Maris made about his book. Almost at the end he gives his email address. Tell him Brian put you onto him and he'll add a couple of dollars to the price .

An oldie , but a goody

The Kosmic 15

Ive had two of these , A NIB Speed version , which I let go , and then this one came my way , and I snapped it up ..

Was in bad shape when I got it [ internally ] , but I was able to find enough parts to do a re-build , and its fantastic internally now , still a little tight and needs running in [ just a little draggy , 15 - 30 minutes on the bench it should be sweet ]

The Kosmic was not half bad , but a huge mistake by the manufacturer was to make it hard to remove the piston/con-rod assembly from the case , a real PITA .
And for some reason they refused to fix the situation , so engines that were easier to work on , went on . [ We do like to tinker ] , and the Kosmic faded from History . The Supertigre G20/15 and the Rossi became mainstream competition engines + several others .

KMD-2.5

Mine is brand new and I believe is the second version where the first version had a black cylinder and was supposed to be the better one. Unusually, there's no removeable cylinder head as the cylinder casting is all one piece. The rear view shows how the compression screw is locked using that short wire pressing into the ridges in the adjusting screw. The bulge alongside the wire contains a sealed in grub screw which mates with a notch in the cylinder liner for positive alignment of the liner.

MVVS engines were really nice when set up correctly , bit heavy , but very nice never the less ...


Come on guys , dont be shy ! Flash your engines ...
