So here we go..... my first truck build W.I.P I started with the engine first in an attempt to fallow the kit build directions in order. I soon discovered an issue with the fitment between the bottom of the heads and the intake/engine block. Note the notched?? area between the bottom of the head and engine block and intake manifold. I don't know the reason for this, I just know that this is not the way it looks in 1:1 scale. Filled in the area with Styrene strip and Bondo Here's where I am at presently with the engine....aftermarket distributor and plug wires, scratch built fuel line,governor linkage to carb, water pipe from intake manifold to surge tank (surge tank not pictured) and riser for the oil breather on the Right side and ignition coil....started some slight weathering...I have not applied any dull coat yet , nor any wash. I had to slightly modify the bottom of the heat riser to properly clear the spark plug boots. Got the Ford C photo etch for this build which will really enhance the cab. Just for shucks and grins I compared the 534 C/I Ford truck engine against one of my 1:25 Fat Block Ford 427's and a big block Ford 460....this truck engine even makes them look small and puny.
