Blown Big Block Chevy?

Recommended Posts

I'm working on a gasser and I need a blown big block Chevy. I've looked at a few and they all seem lacking detail. Are there any good blown big blocks available? Failing that, what kit offers a good big block Chevy? All the ones I've looked at seems very soft on details.

 

Thanks

Newer tool kits like the AMT '67 Chevelle and Impala, and Revell '65-'67 Chevelles and El Caminos, '68-'69 Corvettes, and '69 Camaros all have decent big block Chevy engines.  One of the Revell 'Vettes has an optional blower setup.  Most old-tool engines, particularly the AMT altered wheelbase cars', are on the small side.

If you can use 1/24 scale, the old Monogram '70 Chevelle has a decent blown big block. I'm thinking the last issue that's a B/M comes with headers.

The Revell 68 Vette has a nice blown 427. The valve covers might be a bit modern depending on what you're doing but those are easily swapped.

As far as just the long block portion of a big block, I think the Revell COPO Nova has a pretty decent big block - no blower set up though, you’d have to source that from another kit...I have three of those kits and you would be welcome to one of the engines if needed. 
I also have a bunch of the big blocks from the MPC Open Roadster Corvette - which is softer on details but has those drop tube style dragster headers (I don’t know what they’re actually called - Zoomies?). It also has a Hilborn style intake and metal stacks.  I don’t have the metal stacks available, but the rest of the engine would be.

I have an older version of that I'm going to rehab and I'm pretty sure it says 454 on the valve covers...

You are right, I don't know why I thought it said 454 on it...
