I'm going to be doing a factory stock build on my 440 and I wanted to see how the Mopar experts are doing theirs.  Some things, like the tan distributor cap, are obvious, but I'm always trying to be as accurate as possible & I'm not sure how to do the pan that goes under the intake manifiold.  Am I right in thinking it looks too thick?

Yes. The real valley pan is very thin, and held down on each end by a bar (for lack of a better word), so thin the edges to at least trick the eyes.

 

IIRC they way the valley pan, engine block, and cylinder heads on the Revell 440 fit together is a bit wonky, and you need to assemble the heads and valley pan at the same time to ensure they all align correctly.
