What this is going in is a secret for now.

Parts by Parks Pre-wired Distributer + Coil

Smallblockdodge resins M/T valve covers

Parts box everything else.

Nick Engine detailing is one of my favorite things to do when modeling.I would like to give you a couple of suggestions.first shorten the spark plug boot material on the lead you have going to the coil.second, the holes you have drilled out of the valve covers are a little too large. I mean you only have to slip the plug wire into the hole.If thats what you are planning? Hemis usually require a large round spark plug boot. I usually punch out some thin small disk's out of the rubber material that I get from Photo etched pieces that do not use a "fret" (nothing goes to waste here). However Replicas in Miniature of maryland does offer some very cool looking resin spark plug boot's for the Hemi.



Thanks for posting and keep up the good work.

I plan to shorten the Lead that was a mock up for the photo, I do have apropriate sized boots for the Valve covers, but I'd love for you to sow how you do yours, they might be better then what I have.

It's an AMT Hemi- not one from the Revell Dart

And the cross ram says "race hemi rather than street"

I'd imagine it's going into something that wouldn't take it in the 1:1 world...

Exactly Chris, it almost looks like one from a Coronet Pro Street kit, or at least it's stock counterpart. I've got me enough of those Pro Street kits to last a lifetime or two! :D ;)

What did you use for chroming the valve covers? Whatever it was it looks really good. B)

And, a wild guess on the receiving body .. a GMC Truck! :lol:

Dragline: thank you.
Eelco: Not from the Dart got it from a modeller in a trade some time ago. I'll address what in a minute.
Chris: your correct from what I was told it's an AMT, as for the race thing, I've seen the Cross-Rams in a few Street Machines and that's where I based my idea from.
Mike: I used Aluminum BMF, and no it's not going in a GMC

Big hint time: It's going in a FoMoCo vehicle, and the Vehicle will wear a set of 60's Halibrand Magnesium Wheels. B) Right now some are going "I know, I know!" other are going "What the heck kinda hint is that!"

OK Nick..... I'm going to guess that you're going to put the engine in a '32 Ford 5 window........ did I guess right? (Perhaps I should have posted this guess before?????)

Keep it going.... I like it!
