This one is Revells' 1/6 scale engine kit of a Ford cammer. These engine kits build up with a minimum of drama and are very solid with a lot of the parts being die cast by the look of them.

I changed the plug wires and gave it a light weathering to show how it would look after a few runs but otherwise its out of the box.

I've got that kit and a couple of the other engine kits and never realized they could look that good with just a little extra work .

Great job ! :D

This is a great build up. I remember Hot Rod used to feature engines on their cover. This looks like it was pulled from their cover. GREAT job!

I have the 426 version of this engine in the series. I haven't started it but plan to soon. Your effort is so nice......I really want this engine.

I've found these built up on the auction site. How hard are they to disassemble?

these engines were sold in two versions; a disassembled kit and a assembled and painted diecast/ model.while I never built the kit I did take apart the model and repaint it. the model`s chrome is very difficult to remove so I left the front cover and valve covers chrome and painted the engine block and in-between the valve cover ribs ford engine red.the headers I painted flat white,the oil pan and heads aluminum,the blower case magnesium and detailed the bolt heads ,pulleys ,magneto etc..the look I was going for was the engine in don purdhomme`s dragster.so if you do purchase the diecast model you can dis-assemble it with a little effort to repaint it if you wish.
