    You'll need either access to one and/or a photograph of all sides with dimensions.You then reduce the engine to its simplest shapes i.e. a rectangular block for the main block, a truncated cone for the bell housing, all the various components are a shape or another. the idea is to reproduce each shape in scale and put them together. I built a 702 like that.
    Here is the thread:http://www.modelcarsmag.com/forums/topic/101332-scratchbashing-a-702/
    Hope this helps.

    I guess I am not cut out to do "paint over foil" . The first attempt (on another model) was a disaster and was scrapped. This one isn't much better. I think I'll stick to the 13/0 brush & silver paint.

    With the help of a friend, put the head back on the engine of my '34. I had to replace the gasket. The head is way too heavy for me to play with at arm's lenght.

    Revell tein turbo Cummins (NTC 475?) and Italeri Detroit Diesel Series 60. Bought on eBay, shipped from England for $8. Why does it cost $20 to ship here from the US which is next door?

    There are conversion charts around too. Look it up on Google. I'll try and find some. That is what I use.

    The three things with arrows. I don't know what model it is for, it just says engine detail.
