GREAT work on the pan!

As far as the grooves, they almost appear as ribs. You might want to consider some really thin (0.05 or 0.010) Plastruct or Evergreen strips 1/32nd width or thinner, if available or even some very small round stock welded in good and chamfered along the top, edges, and at the ends to blend them in.

One more piece of advice.  Leave the tube that will go across the frt of the engine cage off until your engine is in final. Otherwise you will have to remove it. Yours is looking killer too.

A fellow modeler gave me the idea of using Evergreen V-Groove. I ordered some, I hope try that when it gets here. The pan still needs some shaping and fine tuning.  If it turns out good I may cast the oil pan and oil tank both, to use in future projects.

Tim,

Have no problem with that!! I'm also working an oil pump/oil filter combo and oil cooler to finish up the dry sump system.

I'm trying model these parts after what I see in this photo. Wish me luck!!

I would use Evergreen flat rectangular plastic or square plastic to replicate the ribs. They make that in smaller sizes, as well.
