I thought I'd try my hand at this beauty.

Here are two more versions as food for thought.

So I cast some heads and some engines.

Removed the exhaust manifolds and glued the halves together.

Fabicated heads, valley cover, a new top for the distributor as the casting was crooked.

Cut & pasted the cam covers. They likely will be the roughest ARDUN cam covers in existence.

Time worthy project. Unusual subject matter that should prove very interesting to watch develop. Thanks for sharing.

These sprue bits will make the distributor ends of the spark plug wire conduits.
