For you more traditional hot rodders out there, here are some test pieces in 1/16 scale for an Ardun converted flathead Ford with the early Hilborn fuel injection............and an adapter to run the GM Muncie 4 speed transmission........

Some of these pieces are really too small, and should probably be combined with their adjacent parts, but they all came through the printer pretty well............the distributor cap just amazes me, even the openings for the wires are there.............

More images here for those interested:

Wow! Those are amazing. It looks as though 3D printing is coming faster than many realize. Those water neck pieces and the block are incredible.

You should post this in General, I think the responses will rev up quick.

They are actual 1/16 scale parts, printed by the 3D printing method. If you look at the pics in the link, you can see the "layers" which are "printed" as the part is created/printed.

Shane..........these parts were done so I could see how they came through the printer at 1/16 scale...........if the interest is there, I will talk to the other guys at TDR and see about getting the pieces into the catalog.........I've also got other stock pieces along with Stromberg intakes, Offenhauser and Navarro heads, as well as SCOT parts..................it just takes a little time to prepare the files.................

I have not had printed the SCOT parts yet, but I suspect they will come through just fine..........I am in the process of preparing the files for listing in the TDR catalog, and we should have them up there in the near future.....................

Thanks for taking a look.............

Tony - you're really cranking out some terrific stuff (BBC and SBC along with their components) and this is just as excellent.
I need an Arden head version for a build coming up. I'm carrying your other engines and can't wait for this one, too.
