Gary....you'd have to ask Revell directly about the nomenclature issue.  Fortunately, because of the separate header flange plates and the way the headers are constructed, it would be a pretty easy fix to make them align appropriately for a 354 or 392 replica.   And this engine has the best valley cover for this type of engine that I have ever seen (OK, small point, but indicative of the care that went into designing the kit).  

Looking forward to seeing your other Old Ford/Street Rod models some day. 

Best regards...TIM BOYD

Revell 1932 Ford 5 window review
Posted by gphkkh on Wednesday, September 2, 2009 9:52 PM

 The latest issue of SA arrived the other day.  I was very interested in the Revell 5 window review but the brief review in the mag left me wishing for more, especially about the "50's Hemispherical engine".  In the online pictures it looks to be a fairly good rendition of the late 50's 331 & 392 Chrysler Firepower engine, except for the exhaust header issue.  Is there an issue at Chrysler or Revell that kept you from calling it that? 

Thanks also for the other pictures of the kit under construction. Though I haven't built an early Ford lately, I have a '29, a 32, & a '34 in the stash. 

 Thaks for the review.

Gary

 

 

 

If I spent as much time building as I do on the forum, I'd get a lot more done!
