Ford Flathead

Recommended Posts

Hi,  I'm not an experienced model builder, but I make parts for a model representation of my Flathead Ford 1/1 engine using 3D printers.  I've been experimenting with scales to see where details fade.  I managed to print an engine block 1/25 and maintain 95% of the detail, surface finish decent.  Block is per Ford blueprints as closely as i could manage including the water jackets.  Someday hope to build a simple diorama of a workbench while a Flathead engine is being built.

Been looking in the diorama section and fascinated by the skills represented there.  I'm too old to achieve anywhere near the levels I'm seeing, but wouldn't mind providing parts to those who can.

Welcome Ray.  Would love to see photos of your Flathead if you would care to post them.

I'd like to see what you have also Ray.  I love the old water heaters (preferably 49-53).. Have a 50 in my roadster and another awaiting a rebuild.

Took a quick pic, I'm no photographer, of the 1/25 scale parts.  Some are not tweaked yet to eliminate flaws.
