Nice work Brian. What is the source of the turbine?

Hi Pat

Turbine is from the STP Lotus kit. It's original issue & had been in my parts box for forty years or so! Used a photo-etched grill from a Tamiya rally kit to replace the original clear plastic pieces. Worked well with the salt flat racer concept.

There are some incredible looking engines here .. MANY of them!

I thought I must have put up the Porsche 944 engine in my avatar but seems not. So here's my best to date and converted from a turbo to a normally aspirated that resided in my 1:1.

Wow, some really cool engines posted here. Here's an AMT 2004 Pontiac GTO LS2 I'm putting into a '55 Chevy Bel Air. The car will be pink and white hence the pink covers and white plenum.

AMT 1956 T Bird, with goodies from the 57 T Bird, and 40 Ford.

We'll compare that to this blast from the past. I built this MPC 1976 Monza as a 15 year old back in 1976....

VERY NICE!! Q: which kit is this?, im waiting to build mine until I get the Hasegawa version. the one I have now is the Testors, and its got a lot of warpage  that I don't feel like fixing.

This is the Testors 944Skit. It had the correct front for the '87 I had. Only the engine block and valve cover is left from the turbo after conversion to normally aspirated. This link is to my Under Glass post for it

The Hasegawa is the best 944 for sure.

I know I posted the 283 in my '60 El Camino but I don't think I've shown this one .  It's the 350 in my '74 El Camino . :)

Here's a few from over the years. 56 F100 was wired in early 70's & the yellow Courier was done in the 80's.

I was using sewing thread for plug wires & chromed elastic thread for braided hose!

All the others were done in the mid 90's & early 2000's.
