  1. Hello everyone, another one of my engines is finished, this time it's a rather small one - the iconic DFV. Really fascinating how well engineered this one is, everything neatly tucked away. Those pumps were hell. The headers are modeled after those on a Tyrrell six wheeler since I found no other usable reference. So here it is in 1/24 for starters, as usual, no attention to color, wiring etc, simply made of printed parts with no finish other than an overall thin layer of silver. Parts are: block, two pumps, distributor with Lucas unit, two intakes, gearbox, two brakediscs, two calipers, two header combinations and two endpipes. The overall length is 50mm. If you want one too please tell me which scale you'd prefer, I heard Formula kits come in 1/20. Enjoy and thanks for looking!
  2. I think the above version will be available soon from Model builder's warehose. Currently I don't have any plans for different configurations. That would increase production efforts a lot and the resulting unit price would be too high.
  3. Here are some more pics. I'll talk to Randy, maybe he'll add it to the lineup at his warehouse https://www.modelbuilderswh.com/collections/engine-kits
  4. Well I've been waiting for a while to see an engine in that chassis... bring it on I'd say
  5. So what would you think about this 3d printed one? 1/24 scale.
  6. This has been described as a general problem with UV curing plastics. The oxygen in air inhibits curing of the surface, one way to avoid it is curing the parts in a UV permeable fluid like glycerine. Putting the parts in direct sunlight for a prolonged time should help too.
  7. Check for pricing here: https://www.modelbuilderswh.com/collections/engine-kits/products/ford-427-cobra-lemans-engine-kit-1-24th-scale
  8. Thanks Bill. Would be great to see an engine build from you! About the cammer - let's say I'm on it
  9. Hello everyone, back to the roots now, with a flathead. After searching for intake options I fell in love with that gothic Thickstun cleaner, so here it is in 1/24. As usual, no attention to color, wiring etc, simply made of printed parts with no finish other than an overall thin layer of silver. Parts are: block, pulleys combined, alternator, two Stromberg carbs, breather, air cleaner, two valve covers, two headers. Many thanks to Tony for his great work on this engine. Enjoy and thanks for looking!
  10. Hello everyone, here's a variation of my big block Ford, the 427 with double Holleys, Cobra air cleaner and Cobra - Le Mans covers. Ever since seeing the GT500 in the "Gunsmith Cats" manga I always wanted to build that machine. Thanks to DeAgostini I might actually do it one day, and of course it needs a better engine then. So here it is in 1/24 for starters, as usual, no attention to color, wiring etc, simply made of printed parts with no finish other than an overall thin layer of silver. Parts are: block, pulleys combined, distributor, two Holleys, air cleaner, two valve covers, two breather caps. Enjoy and thanks for looking!
  11. Guess it was right not to print that stuff, I would have never got to see that great work of yours.
  12. Yup, got it here as a reprint https://www.autobooks-aerobooks.com/product/ford-competitioin-engine/ Some guy had an original one on ebay for 300 bucks...
  13. Seems like there's a new business opportunity for the after-market guys The ignition wires I used are 1,0mm ones. For paint I like to use Alclad flat alu over spraycan flat black. To achieve different looking parts I apply a very light layer of different Citadel acrylics, mostly green/gray tones. The dark parts are Citadel Skavenblight Dinge, kinda like slate. At the end a light black oil paint washing.
