Thanks guys! Well I finally got some more done on this build. The engine is finished (less wiring/plumbing, belt etc.) and added the following Pro Tech parts for detailing, Supercharger Pulley Set, Oil Breathers, Plug Boots and Nuts & Bolts. I also scratch-built the fuel blocks/fuel pump then gave the entire engine assembly a light wash. I also built-up the mag with a Pro Tech dist. kit cap/wire boots along with the kits mag base. The clutch can was detailed with Pro Tech Nuts & Bolts. Thanks for looking!

Looking Good Charlie!  On the nuts, did you use one one per location or did you stack them to give them the desired thickness? Great job!

Thanks guys!

 

Ed, no, the nuts are not stacked (one per location), that the thickness they are etched in.

Thanks, when on the "tree" they seam to be rather thin, but after seeing them installed, apparently they aren't too thin after all. Thanks for the reply.

Thanks guys!

 

Pappy, I only use metalizer paints on the smallest of small parts (brushed) as I don't use an airbrush for any paint work, I hate the set-up/clean-up :D

Well I got a "little" more done on this. Installed the following Pro Tech parts - plug wires, plug wire looms, plug boots, fuel line with hex fittings. I then mildly weathered everything to give it that "real world' effect. On to the tire/wheel assembly! Thanks for looking!

Hey Charlie... Its great to see you back on this. the detail looks great. I am looking forward to more. On another note... Have you thought about doing spark plug wire looms in 1/16th scale to fit your 1/16th scale plug wire??... hint hint  ;) ... :lol:

Looking Great! Your work is always impressive. Those Metal Finishes are really nice and that combined with spectacular detailing looks very good.

 

My Pro Tech Braided Lines are somewhere between Miami and Finland... Can't wait. :D
