Thanks everyone for the great comments.

That is a jaw dropper Steve!! Excellent work on the chassis and exhaust. What's the exhaust made from? Aluminum tube or solder?

The exhaust is made from solder and the tips are aluminum tube.

Looks like this thread got moved, it was in the "under glass" section. I guess it's not considered a "model" since it is half die cast.
Oh well, it was just as fun and rewarding to build as any plastic kit I've put together.

No, it's not that Steve. It's because it's a pickup. You can post drag cars,NASCARs,motorcycles,airplanes or whatever else you like in "Under Glass,but don't dare post photos of a pickup! It's also funny how some pickups get moved and other don't.

Thanks Joe, no this engine was built from scratch, the only kit pieces in it are the tranny, the water pump and the ignition coils.
The engine from the die cast was really basic, not much usable except for the air cleaner. I might use it in a future project.

I just saw this. That Art Morrision frame and suspension are off the chain. I also like the engine detail. This is a killer build!

Scratchbuilt engine :wacko:. Unbelievable. Do you have any more pictures of the engine... under construction or finished.
