Everything looks incredible. Is that embossing foil used on the hood? I have done that on a few old ford models to have the louvers visible in the inside of the hood.

I got a little more work done today, I think I have the turbos more or less buttoned up, I will probably add a little heat staining here and there and call it good..they are not perfect , it is pretty tough for me to try and duplicate everything backwards and make it all fit and line up.. LOLPosted ImagePosted ImagePosted ImagePosted Imagethanks for checkin in!!

lol omg, there isn't much I could say that hasn't already been stated, but going through this thread and seeing all that fabulous, amazing work just simply brings a smile to my face. All I can do is work with plastic at the moment, but this certainly inspires me to be creative and look for ways to push my own work. Thanks for being a great inspiration! :)

Men i'm speechles.....the detail, the craftmanship is awesome. I show the pics to my 7 years old son and explain to him the real size of the engine. He ask me "this engine work and how he put gas on it?". Its look so real. Awesom job.
