I am doing a quick buld of AMT/ERTL'S Lamborghini countach LP 500 the kit is 21 yrs old it was part of a triple car package. I figured I'd build it quick because I'm sick of looking at it. IMG505.jpg

This kit is as basic as they come. maybe 50 parts. The engine is a panel that you glue on. So I have the top 1/4 of the engine. Valve covers, carbs and a few odds and ends is all that is visible. I was wondering without going crazy what details could I add? I have yet to find a good picture of the engine bay on google so I'm guessing mostlyIMG507.jpg
I haven't yet painted the carbs and such

Really not a lot other then plug wires, but even with the real car, most of the engine is hidden, or hard to see

Correct, it took me a few trys,  the first few times I had LP500 in the search text, and I got the same thing you did, only images of the exterior,  leave out the LP500, for whatever reason, that is the issue with finding images of the engine
