Yeah, absolutely! This kit is very good quality and nice basis for adding some extra details.

Here is my engine of this same kit, for a little inspiration and maybe reference too. It's still in progress, though. http://www.modelcarsmag.com/forums/index.php?showtopic=39369

Can't wait to see more.

I don't know if some Hobby Shops there have wires and other aftermarket stuff, but one way to make wires is to stretch a piece of parts tree with heat to get small diameter wire which can be painted to whatever color you like. It works almost as easily as Aftermarket plug wires do. Or then you can simply order those wires online. I don't know where those are cheap or where they are expensive or anything like that, since I don't live in the USA. Someone else knows this better.

And for the drills, I guess they can be ordered too?

Looks great so far. What you need is a pin vise, and a set of small drill bits. I get my bits at Wal Mart with the Dremel accessories.

Old telephone wire is another source of plug wires.

thank you and i stripped category 5 wire and got wire that looks to scale. i hate working with heat and plastic cause it never ends well.... lol..... but i think i may invest in a drill today.

ill have more update today/tonight.
