Early 60s British Straight six
Posted by fomocomav on Friday, November 04, 2016 10:03 AM

Are the Aurora/Revell Jaguar, Lindberg/Aurora Triumph and the Monogram Austin Healy the only straight six British motors produced?  I'm looking for one that is less sporty, and not as big as the Jaguar motor.  Mostly because I don't have any of those kits!

Hi;

  I believe that's it on the sixes .You can find a few fours , but it's hard to find .

There are a couple others that come to mind, but they may also be considered 'sporty'. The Revell/Monogram Jag XK120 has a nice DOHC 6, as does the Tamiya MkII Jag, but these are definately 'sporty'.

Parhaps somewhat less so is the six from the old Revell Austin Healey 100-6. For a very old kit it has a really decent engine, and being a pushrod engine it merely needs a single carb intake and proper exhaust manifold to look decidely plain.

Thanks for the responses!  I might just have to go sporty.
