For some reason I like to collect engines.  There have been many engines made as stand alone display pieces, so I'm sure I'm not alone.  if you want to see more photos of these engines, just click on the photo.

Here we have two Ford Flatheads by GMP. These are 1/6 scale made of diecast and very detailed.

That's a good one Danno.  I'm just getting started, can't find all of my photos.  I hope I didn't lose them in my computer crash:blink:

What scale are they? 

If you are asking about the one in the Falcon, it is 1/18, like the third photo from the top. The photo above that one is the same engine on a stand. 

Thanks for sharing the link and the Model A engine. I had not seen that version before and having had a few 1:1 A's & T's I would sure like to find one.

 

Thanks Mike, Looking at that again makes me want to dig my stash out and get started.

This is actually a display of the John Deere Triple Link Suspension system but has a nice engine so it counts to me. It was made for JD dealers to demonstrate the front axle and is made of diecast on a wood base in 1/16 scale.

Thanks guys.  Greg you have me on the hunt for one of those Ford 4 bangers. :P 

Scott, I also have been fascinated by the early plane engines. I have a small kit of one here some place.

I added 2 flathead 1/6 engines and 3 1/4 Hemi engines.

Thanks. glad you like the engines.

Lance, the 1/18 engines do not have fan belts. I wrapped a thick black thread around them with dab of superglue on the bottom pulley to hold it.   Space is an issue for me until  I get my man cave set up. I plan on getting all the engines in one display. 

This weekend I'll do a photo shoot of some more engines.
