Orphaned makes, European and Asian engines by FTB

Really excellent work.

Did you scratch build the airbox on your Stude R3 or is there a source for that part? It looks very authentic. I built an R3 replica a few years back and scratch built the airbox but mine didn't capture the look of the real thing like yours does.

Porsche 928. SOHC V8  (website said SOHC although it looks more DOHC to me), 4.5 to 5.4L./ 270-350hp. This engine evolved quite a bit over the years. Bought on eBay incomplete, so hard to tell which kit (year) it is from.

It looks very similar to the one in the Gunze kit (#G215) I have.  So far its the only one I've found with a complete driveline.

Most of the rear of the engine was made with other pats. as I said in the post, it was incomplete. thanks for pointing out the origin kit.

The eengine and driveline are molded almost as if to display them outside the car. (Picture of the box).  There was also a driveline in kit #g211, but I have never seen it anywhere.

Many years ago, I got on a kick where I would build the engines out of my kits and so I ended up with 12 built engines. These look really good!

I believe so. Look at the shadow of the name in the step 2 window. It was bought by itself on eBay. This thread is one of three. Here are the others:

Porsche 914-6. SOHC Flat 6, 2L./110 hp. This is the rather plain Revell unit which I detailed a bit to give it life.
