Hi all I've been eagerly awaiting this since I ordered it with my birthday money and it's finally here





It's beautifully packaged, feels like a high quality product.









Nothing is attached to sprues it's all in little bags











The one little gripe I have with it is Revell partly assemble it for you like this for instance





There are a few other parts pre assembled.

Problem is the engine block is cast so I've got to find a way to disassemble it to make the cast effect on the block, as you can see it looks far too shiney and smooth as it is.



The kit looks great, i think they made 4 in this series some are no longer in production but I'm going to try and get the full set (I will have to eBay for the rest)

Another update It's really hard trying to make plastic look like metal, all my usual tricks don't seem to be working, need to try some more washes.

Hi all I don't have access to a big American car so have had to loosely, and I mean loosely base this on the biggest car I have access to ( my bosses 340sl merccedes)( would have preferred his rolls royce) I've had to be creative with the measurements and this is very simplified, just a framework tho add suspension struts to and stuff.






It is purely to allow me to add some of the many engine connections a couldn't add with the supplied stand. I may not even use this, but and this is a big but, if it looks ok and I can find plans for it maybe I will try to scratch a full 1/6 car to put it in.

Hi all well the engine is nearly complete, I've added a few more details to the engine bay ( these are purely to add interest and not based on any car) as I said I need an engine bay to add the connections to the engine.

Love it!  As a British lover of classic American Muscle, and a die-hard Blue Oval fan, the 427 FE block is my favourite lump!  Only thing that could have made your kit better was if it had the SOHC heads.  In my youth I had a '68 Galaxie XL500 with a 390 FE motor, so that all looks very familiar.  One point about the ejector pin marks on the flywheel.  They may have been balancing holes put there by Ford.  I can't be certain though, it's been many years since I had an FE apart.
