Derrick: Your builds are great, when you figure it out, post a link to the pics, I want to see them!
Updating the Simca build. I installed the seats and built new steering linkage. It's mostly built from Miss Deal kit parts, but they are radically modified, since the steering is now on left side, not in center as it was originally in that Studebaker kit. Also I started building the fuel system plumbings for the engine, not too fancy stuff, but done anyway. The driveshaft is built from two Miss Deal kit driveshafts, not the best in the world, but Okay for me.

I modified the seat belts a bit, they are lot more realistic now, when they're connected to roll cage, not to the seat. Also scratchbuilt the parachute handle, and installed the cable. Also added that transmission crossmember, and radiator too. Water hoses are installed too.
Simple Pedals are scratchbuilt too.

Here is the first mock up pic. It looks very good to my eye.
And the engine before i disassembled it. I hope that i get some paint to the engine block today.
And the Chassis. This was how it looked after i removed that exhauspipe...looks much better in pic than in person.
And this was how it looks after some styrene and first coat of bondo. Looks pretty rough to me but i hope it getting better after lots of bondo and sanding.

Mopar engine in a Chevy? Just kidding, it looks great! I'll be watching this one, it will look amazing when finished, as your builds always do. Good luck with the exhaust pipe, I've done that few times on Monogram '57 or '56 Chevy kits, and it's really tricky.

And small update to Nomad. Couple days a go i painted engine block gloss red and transmission is painted aluminium. Yesterday evening i glued oilpan on it's place and made by using styrene some kind of plate (or whats the real word of that) under that blower and intake manifold because it looked so stupid without that. It is painted aluminium also but i dont have good pic of that. Today i glued intake manifold and blower on their places. I also put distributor to the engine and put plug wires. I think that this is going to be one of my best looking engines what i'm build. I also continued chassis and now it pretty good but needs some work. If i have good luck i might get some primer and black paint on it Sunday but lets see.

Nomad looks great, too! The engine really is one of your bests, even if I like your Simca's engine a lot too. Great progress with the chassis also, it's coming along nice and fast.
