Thanks everyone, great to be back building again. Been a few years since I finished anything and still have some to 'half-builts' to get done, so looking forward to completing more in the coming months.
How about the tool set needed to work on something that small?....That alone would be a challenge. Sockets, feeler gauges, plasti-gauge,.....etc..!! Yeah right. I'll just run over to the Matco tool truck and get a 1/25 scale tool set....No prob.
Did you find any info on that "phantom 1/25 scale internal combustion V-8 engine" yet?
Obtaining information on something that amazing must be hard to come by.
I'm certainly eager to learn more about it, so I'll continue to patiently await for the updates.............Thanks, Jeff
PS.... Does anyone know if Fel-Pro sells gasket sets for 1/25 scale chevy SBC's?
What about timing chain sets? Anyone know of timing chains sold in 1/25 scale?
I know, I'll go with a Pete Jackson gear drive....Wait a sec!!...Will old watch gears work instead? How about carburators? Does holley sell 1/25 scale 750 or 850 double pumpers? and what about fuel pumps?....I'm confused now.
Sorry for the questions, but inquiring minds want to know.
I dunno man, If Augie had truly created a "running" 1/25 scale SBC chevy-V-8 internal combustion engine, it would have been featured on every front cover of every modeling magazine that there ever was/is....I don't think something like that would have been "forgotten about" and would now require some deep digging and looking around to find documentation.
An engine like that in 1/25th, would have been epic...I'm not trying to call you a fibber/truth stretcher, but it seems strange that none of the Top hobbyists and scale auto builders I have talked to and know are aware of this Astounding Engine.
Something like that surely would have ended up in the GSL museum or equivalent...
I guess I'm one of those "show me/don't tell me" types...I'm looking forward to learning more about this 8th wonder of the modeling world...I hope I can see pics of it running and functioning..WIP files would be fantastic...........Thanks, Jeff
