So what's the deal with the engine ? Is it a hemi ??

I wanted something different, as the small block Chev just looked too small for what i was after,

so went to Mr google, and i found where they are making Hemi heads for LS Chevs in 1:1, so i just thought, " why not'" , 

, so i scratch built everything to fit on the Chev block.  Just to be different, and give it a bit more size and aggression. 

I call it a CHEMI.. ;)

Hi Dale!

Thanks for the reply.

I too do custom painting on 1/1 cars and rods. Mostly use HOK clears and Farecla compound and G-Mops.

However, I find automotive clear is too hard for polishing "harmlessly" on plastic bodies without generating the heat required to get it to flow under the buffing action. A steel body can accept such heat/pressure in polishing, plastic is more fragile, That is why I mostly use Testor's Wet Look clear (in spray cans), followed by wet  block sanding (with a supple eraser as a block) with 2000, 3000 and 6000, and hand polishing. 

Usually works fine (see Javelin below).

Hi Dale!

You are right to "stick with what works fine" for you. Far from me to try to steer you back to "hobby paints". All that counts is your enjoyment, and satisfactory results. Keep having fun with styrene!

Awesome build! It’s incredible beautifull and flawless! Looks like a 1:1! Is that the 1:12 or 1:25? 

I was wondering the same.  Tread on the tires makes me think 1:12th.  In either case magnificent build Dale!- Mark

Whoa!... INCREDIBLE work!.. I mean it’s  flippin’ bad to the bone mannn!!.... Your skills really show through in every area on this one. I really don’t see an area where you could have done something better. I love your taste in the color choices and all of the extra details and how clean all your fabricating is is just truly impressive... Can’t say enough🤠👍👍👍

Very nice! Beautiful paint and the details all are so well done. My guess is this is 1/12 scale.

Your guess is as good as any. After three queries, he still hasn't told us the size.
