Hi,
A little update.

This little rod has a Buick v6 engine i have a engine from a buick model , now it's hard to find a engine like this so i planned to make a mold of it so i can make copie's of it from resin.

This is the mold i made from silicone rubber.

I have seen a project log of this show car over on coffin corner2, I wonder if that builder has decided to join our wonderful group of styrene addicts.

Then my eye saw this.

A screwdriver.
This drivers have ribbed grip, so i cut a piece off and with a mill i made a hole in the middle.
