Wow!!! This is so impressive and the chassis looks great as well as the engine and all of the detail on this build. Nice work!

Just catching up on this. Give me a second to pick up my jaw. What a fantastic job and thanks for the wheel tutorial - I hate those thick plastic spokes in the kit (at any scale).
I love the linkage and fuel fittings at the injector.
Does the T handle in the cockpit go to a fuel cutoff valve?
Why did you choose brass bolts/nuts at the front suspension?
Last question - The valve covers look high enough to be a nailhead, but the exhausts look more like a SBC. What is it and who makes it?

As Steven Tyler would say on American Idol, "It's a beautiful thing, man".

Man, I've not heard that saying, but it sure rings true about this beautiful build Dave. :blink: :wub:
Sorry I've missed the best part of this gorgeous build Dave, I'm in the same boat as Ted, and am only just catching up... :(
Your attention to detail is second to none, a true contender if ever there was one. B) :)
Cheers mate.

Hi Ted, thanks for the kind words. Yep the T handle does go to the fuel cutoff valve
I used some brass nuts and bolts purely because I had them and they looked ok for the application, once painted with some ModelMaster chrome silver they blended in with the rest of the front end.

The finned valve covers and heads were resin cast from some out of the Lindberg Bullhorn T Hotrod kit. The block came from the 55 Chev kit.

Thanks for the compliments Rick and Greg. Appreciate you looking in.
