      The Forums will be down, Friday, November 24th starting 8 AM PST for upgrade.We'll probably be down until 1PM PST, but it might be longer. I'm doing a major forum software upgrade, so I expect the forums to operate somewhat differently when we come back online.

    Bill,
    Yes, I can use that engine. I'll figure out something about the glue on the intake. Tell me what you want for it. Thanks for the reply.

    Similar to what we have here in Thailand, but not as heavy duty. Ours have a one cylinder diesel engine with 10-12 HP. Lots of torque. With a trailer it becomes the family sedan.

    Unusual Different Build
    Whose going to be the first to build a copy of this. Beyond my abilities, but doable I think.

    Molotow Pens not Shiny
    I have a problem with the Molotow pens. They are not as shiny, like chrome as I had expected. I'm getting a finish more like a good quality silver paint. Maybe it's my application technique or do they need a certain base coat first. How many coats are required. Thanks.

    Padded Workbench
    Does anyone use a padded workbench  for final assembly, so as not to scratch the paint etc? If so, what material did you make it from? I have used paper towels only to find the imprint of the paper towel design on the roof of the model. Would appreciate input. Thanks.

    I have a 396 with a 4sp from Revell 67 Camaro and a 427 with a 4sp from a AMT  37 Chevy kit. In the past I have grafted engines to transmissions quite successfully. The 396 is bone stock. The 427 is a supercharged engine. Both assembled, complete. Yours for the asking.
