Is the resin engine you bought made by The Parts Box in Australia?

Tom, if you are referring to this one, it is 3D printed by Ron Olsen on Shapeways (3D Model Specialties)

Howdy  Landman, Comp1839,  The plug locations are pretty much how I figured they would be too.  Yeah I love the modern take you did on the Beast Comp1839 not sure I've seen it in this finished sate. beautiful machine work!!!

I've scaled way back on production because I like working out the prototypes too much and have to many projects on the bench already however now that we are into extended 'retirement' I am feeling the need to fire back up the resin works and sell a few more kits.  I did finally get the Potvin project fleshed out.

Yes 1/8.  I got the bug when I had the Monogram flathead and did an Ardun set for them and read some post on another forum about a Potvin V12 that's when I developed the Lincolnstein project to make the big 12.

But we digress from landman's wonderful 1/24 build.  Just a note on the distributor, I liken it to a cross between Darth Vader' helmet and Princess Leia's buns.

Somehow I can see the crank driven supercharged version in the back of a belly tanker on it's way to the salt flats.
