There are ready Photo Etch detail kits for carburetors. Mostly they are for Holley carbs. Many of my builds have Rochester Quadrajet, since I build alot of those Stock Eliminator Drag Cars, so there are no Detail kits available. Drill the carburetor throats open and add Fuel Lines just as the Reference pics say. The carburetor linkage can be scratchbuilt, too.
Also I bought just a pair of decent looking Carter AFB carburetors. Can't remember the Manufacturer, though but they were Resin.
Few Carburetors of mine.
