Personally , I wish Revell had done the Flathead as they were kind of unique to 1932. The 33-36's were in a different catagory as were the later 24 stud blocks that came afterwards . Oh well, I guess we Replica Stock folks are S O L again ............ Ed Shaver

The Hemi is more like the Early Hemi engines. The placement of the Distributor and the dual water outlets fit the design of the older engines like the 331Ci. The Heads are incorrect for any Hemi and so are the Headers, but this is easy to correct with the Head and Valve cover kits from R&M co. of Maryland. Norm also has correct over the frame style Headers For the Revell Hemi engines in the 5 Window kits, he also has Manifolds with Carbs for them: Two Fours, Four Deuces, Six Deuces, and Eight Deuces.
