I'm well past 1000 parts, I have no clue what the total parts count will be.

As for the decals, I draw everything I print, I am "the source". (Look up Scale-Master Decals...)
No "scan and edit", it is all vector art. I don't know if there is a place you can go to that has something ready to print; I do know that I don't offer such an option.

Actually, they are from Jeg's. I keep old catalogs from the speed suppliers for period correct reference of sometimes obscure parts.

Finished transmission. I know it is well into the hundreds for the parts count on this sub-assembly, but I have no actual number. Mostly styrene construction with several brass and aluminum pieces.

You had me going there for a minute! Why would the alternator be mounted to the oil pan??? :blink: Answer-It's not! Just a prop. :wacko: Very nice work as usual Mark. Going to be a stunner when done.

Thanks Pete. It is a remote oil filter, it can be mounted almost anywhere. This is the final mounting location for both it and the alternator.

Water pump (with alternator bracket) and timing cover.

Oil pump. Well over 30 pieces, likely over 40. I know I machined 11 parts for it just today.

Thanks for the idea of using a jegs book to scratch items out with. I will look at your decals. Now

I made an asbestos insulator wrap for the header. I mixed a light metallic gray color and painted the tape to replicate the color of a brand I found that offers it in two inch and one inch widths.

Amazing work Mark, everything looks fantastic!!  What is the plate on the left side of the motor that looks like a delete plate?
