    The main issue with SBFs is the front sump. The Sump can interfere with the steering on the pre 1935 Fords where the spring is over the axle. In my experience I have had to mount SBFs further back than a SBC to give steering clearance unless I wanted to mount the engine way too high. The overall length wouldn't really be a problem if they had Chev type rear sumps. The Bronco sump has been commonly used but that only gives about an inch or so in real terms. The oil pump location is the determining factor

    Only took about a minute to download to my IPad.
    Resolution is great and photos can be zoomed to see detail
    I get a few magazines on Zinio and they allow me to click on web addresses in the advertisements and go straight to them and then easily back to the magazine. Magzter does not seem to have this function. It is not a big problem, just an observation.
    in short, I really like the digital version and can hardly wait for the next one.
    It is an excellent option for international readers

    Thanks for the info Tim
    Time to put aside some cash for a couple of these.
    Unfortunately it's getting harder to buy kits here in Aus as the local distributor is not very good. I still haven't seen the 29 roadster anywhere. I ended up buying a couple through a well known auction site but postage can be a killer now too.

    Much of what I'd like has been shared but here goes anyway
    Quickchange on A spring
    I beam with Hairpins
    Stock style centre cross member
    Early Halibrands
    Dirt track rears / implement fronts
    Chopped screen with Sid Chavers style top
    Auburn dash inset
    Tuck and roll
    SCoT blown flathead with 4 speed with a triple carb option
    Moon tank
    Louvered hood and trunk with non louvred options (like the 5W)
    I'd also like to see the spring cross members engineered to allow ride height to be varied eg low setting for modern style or raised a little got traditional

    Kit historians help please
    Hi all
    I have been contacted by someone looking for information on an old model from their childhood.
    This what he wrote

    When I was a kid (late 60's) I had a plastic model of a Model T track roadster. I'm pretty sure I inherited it already built. It had a speedway nose, and a turtle deck. The only other things I can recall are that it was dark blue plastic, and had a white drawing on the doors of a couple dancing and the words "Lindy Hop".

    Can anyone identify the kit . It sounds like an old Lindberg or Aurora kit
    Thanks
    Chris

    Revells next release from the Model A Roadster tool - a 30/31 Coupe
    Just saw this on a site talking about Revell and the models hobby
    http://craftsmanship.net/parts-recreation/

    Seems they are use a 30/31 body this time. That's a shame as far as I'm concerned. I would have preferred the 28/29 A coupe

    Just when you think it is safe to go back into the hobby shops, Revell springs this on us!!
    WELL DONE Revell and all involved.
    Like the 32 Fords I'll be stocking up on a few of these for kitbashing material

    I'm pretty excited about this one

    Thanks for all the info Tim
