    cox lil stinker

    I have acquired my dad's collection of model a/c and it is quite large. Apparently, the cox Lil Stinker is quite popular, now. I think I have 5 of them, 2 NIB. Three of them do not have stickers on them and are of different colors. My question is, what colors did they come in? How do I know they are really Lil Stinkers? Are there printed markings on them? They look the same as the ones in the boxes, but there are clones on the market like the Red Baron, and others put out by cox. Is there a data base of photos somewhere? I have one each of lime green, canary yellow and red. These might not be the real color names, but it is the best I can do. Any help or photos will be appreciated...also, price guides?

    RE: cox lil stinker

    The planes are actually Pitts Specials. The only "Lil Stinker" was the Pitts Special flown by Betty Skelton, I believe. Here is a link to a site that has them all. Mine is the 1968 version with the red and white striped wing (although mine was given to me and is in rough condition).

    RE: cox lil stinker

    I think I was moved most by this little plane when I saw this ad from Cox. This ad in my opinion was when Cox was really trying hard to make a real impression with the public.

    RE: cox lil stinker

    Great ad. I remember quite a few years ago seeing an acrobatic team at an air show that flew all red Pitts. There were either 3 or 4 of them and I think they called themselves the "Red Devils". Too bad cox didn't make one of those...or did they?

    RE: cox lil stinker

    I saw Betty Skelton fly Little Stinker at the Reading, Pa. airshow about 1950. I think hers' only had an 85hp Continental unlike todays overpowered bricks with 200 plus horsepower. She put on a great show. Larry
