At my actual pace it would take me 85 lives to make all of these...  Outstanding Pat!

Great builds again Pat!

This ongoing... collection of engines is very impressive!  Where do you find all of these?   Do you have a recycling yard (diorama) full of cars and trucks emptied from their motors?

Well done sir!!!

Merci Francis. I get most of them on eBay from breakers (those who separate a kit and sell it in pieces). I have several that are 3D printing and I have semi scartchbuilt several using junk engines.

Datsun 720 pickup engine, from the Revell snap kit. Had to make a distributor as there wasn't one and interestingly, they put the spark plugs in the block rather than in the head. OHC 4, 2.4L/103 hp.

Exhaust turned around. I suppose the mistake came from the mind being conditioned to aim the exhaust towards the transmission.

You could have said it was going into a LM002. ?  Did you have fun doing the plug wires? ?  When I did the Ferrari, cheated with the tube they run through.  Like your fuel lines too.

Never even thought of that.As far as the plug wires go, iused a 3D printed distributor with a hollow in the center. I bunched the wires and glued them in there then I threaded them though the two little tubes. I use clear .5mm rubber cord and paint them. Glad you like it.

ENGINES YEAH!!!!  They are the heart of any machine and are really an entire kit unto themselves!  Of course if you have an entire engine shop diorama it must have a great collection of motors.  Thanks landman, even the engines in the background look interesting.  I like the Chrysler turbine, GMC 6-71diesel, and the old Hit-n-Miss, even a Lincoln V12!  Snow Shoes?  For when it is too icy to drive?
