Fellow builders, I present to you..the Dohc Duece

its the body is heavily channeled, sitting on an amt phantom vickie frame with the 4.6 motor modded to look a little old(flathead heads modded to fit the valve covers and my own version of a hilborn efi system). Front suspension will be phantom vickie, rear suspension will hopefully be a '99 mustang cobra irs. Color will be tamiya dark blue metallic, wheels are modded revell salt flat specials in wide and wider with some MPC Motorsports tires. It will get a horizontal bar grill and the lower pan will be molded in to cover the suspension mounts, and to tie in the quad projector headlights. Hope you guys like it, as always comments and critisms are welcome, also hope you don't mind the pic quality, its my dads camera and while it does have macro..the lights in his place aren't the best for taking good pics

Bob, been thinking of doing that, but I want to use a photoetch grill, mcg does offer a chopped grill shell though with horizontal bars...might give that a try, but the lower portion (the splash pan) won't be as low as shown, i've got a bit of work to do on the grill if I don't use a chopped grill..lol
thanks for the comments guys

Looking good. Are the intake trumpets the eyelets available at craft stores? I think I bought some to use for that application, so if that's what they are then I know they can look good now. Keep those updates coming. Deuce day is just over a month away!
yep that they are, i got em from michaels, i've got some of the black ones shown and some shiney aluminum ones...3 bucks for a package of 100
they are kind of big though, for systems where the intake openings are closer the trumpets will need to be filed flat to get closer..

...I just wanted something a little prettier than the regular mod motor vc's...
What about modifying a pair of old school 427 SOHC cam covers?
