I already commented once, but this one deserves a second look and a second comment...
Only someone who has worked on engines from that era and age, (with some really good knowledge of weathering materials, techniques and skills), can make a model engine look that realistic.
My favorive touch is the paint worn off of the thermostat housing from the multitude of time the hose was twisted on and off!!
Keep up the GREAT work and thanks for sharing,
Thanks for the compliments everyone. Actually, I've done very little work on the real thing, just basic stuff on an Olds 350 for a while, a '77 Pinto, an '82 Civic, not much really. I just try to pay attention to the little things and then the big ones take care of themselves. I'm still kind of new to the car building, most of my modelling has been military vehicles.
