Well, I built one of these about 4 years back and sent it off to be resin cast by Alan of Ma's Resin. Unfortunately, last I heard, it was in the mail. That was 5 months ago and I haven't seen the engine or heard from him yet. So, I decided the easiest thing would be to build another. The only reason I haven't been real frustrated with the previous one is because I have been too busy with school to think about it. However, I was just talking to a classmate of mine, and it turns out that he builds models too. He got me excited about setting some time aside to build some more, and I decided that I would start with another cummins.
I have a couple of questions, though. There are three options. I was thinking I would build a 24V 5.9L Cummins 6BT. However, I could do a 12V or the new 6.7 if those are preferred.
Please let me know your preference.
Any help with dimensions from anyone who has a cummins would be great. That kind of info isn't real easy to find on the internet. Hopefully I will get this thing finished in a couple months and I can then look at getting another, more reliable resin caster.
