  1. Cool, I've always had a thing for the Cadillac "Flower Car" hearses, kind of the ultimate "El Camino". You can still find them for sale out there.
  2. Thanks Pat, surprisingly the v12 was only 267ci stock. I 'd be willing to bet that Kohler had it opened up.
  3. Let us know the figures on that Ardun after you've run her through her paces.
  4. Nice Work... Sweet little Awl! Have you considered making a quick mold and casting the right side rocker? The unequal arms were for Indy. Meticulous work. Son and I did airplanes and he and I are passing the torch to his son.
  5. My thought is "what ever work is good" ball point pen caps, rocket nose cones, blister packs. I like your use of wheel covers, turbo mags etc. make great jet engine parts. I can see where the Gundam kits would offer lots of bits and pieces to work with. I really like the Maschinen Krieger kits, much too pricey for kit bashing but a great reference source for detail like you have. I rememer going to a show of Star Wars models and seeing a large section of a Star Destroyer side trench.

Mad mike has the wiring down on his 1/8 Indy Ford. I like to use 24 gauge electric wire that comes in many colors. Solid rather than braided seems to be more manageable and hold if's shape. The injected engine uses 24 ga. The blown engine I believe are 22 ga. because I wanted a high performance silicon look, but I think they are a tad too big. Of course these are apples to oranges compared to a
  9. Early on I did work one up in CAD, could be printed but the skin is only 1/8 in 1:1
  10. Cool! I didn't know that Aurora had parts packs. They look like 70's era sets, what with the Doug Nash tranny and multi disc clutches.
  11. Ok, in the spirit of the thread This is the ultimate crate motor!
  12. Space... The final frontier! Half the fun is figuring out just the right spot for that dohicki that you could never find back in the old place.
