This is what he's looking g for. See attached. There may be a 3d printed one 🤔

If not anybody that has a Cox Honest John could take some close up photos from the rear with a ruler and perhaps one could be 3d printed.

Default Cox Motor retainers

Yes, that's the one .If there aren't any available would someone be able to 3d print some for me? I posted this in the 3d print group on Facebook on Facebook but I haven't gotten a response yet. I've sent out numerous requests to a number of different sources but I have yet to get a reply except to say that they would probably have to be 3d printed.I did find one person who said they had some but he didn't have the 18mm size.

Someone on the other forum informed me that he has the 18mm retainers for the Honest John and he's sending me one.So once I get that I can have someone make some for me.That was a surprise, I didn't think there were any more left to be found out there.So now when I do get theHoJo it's gonna see plenty of flight time. And another thing, is there a possibility of finding the original parachutes?I don't really think so but I thought I'd ask anyway.

Here are what I show for Cox engine clips, I dont have the Cox Little Joe II so can not speak with authority on it, but believe it uses the same 18mm clip as the others, also note on the Nike, the booster loads from the top, and the "ejection tunnel" is the retainer for the booster section, turned by the "key" included. Also the Saturn 1B has the option of single 24mm or dual 18mm.

Cox also had a #5057 Snap-in 18mm engine retainer clip, which was white in color. See attached views below and see attached parts list.

The Cox #4960 Twist-lock 18mm engine retainer clip was gray in color.

Both of these type engine retainer clips would work on the Cox Little Joe II, the Cox Honest John and the Cox Nike Zeus.

Interesting to note the Saturn V tower (which, as has been previously stated, was never released) was set to cost $9. Would have made a nice addition had they ever released it.

For those who may be interested, there is one of these nice Vintage Cox Model Rocketry Poster tri-fold brochures currently listed on ebay for sale: https://www.ebay.com/itm/2856969018...ABk9SR9Tf3IO0Yw
This is not my listing, nor do I know the seller.

As mentioned in my earlier post #19 in this thread, https://forums.rocketshoppe.com/sho...1484#post251484 , Otto Kuhni is the talented graphic artist who produced these attractive eye-catching illustrations for the L.M. Cox Manufacturing Co. Model Rocketry Poster tri-fold brochure. He is also famous for doing the Mattel Hot Wheels illustrations and many others.
