427 engine?
Posted by Camaross1stgen on Monday, March 08, 2004 6:37 PM
I'm looking for a 427 engine, if I could, I'd like to get two complete engines, however, I don't want to go buy models soley just because I want the engine, is there some kind of kit, I know revell made engine kits that were chrome, but I heard they had been discontinued, any suggestions?

The Revell parts pack kits you speak of offer a small block Chevy (283) and a Ford 427, but not a Chevy big block.

Too bad, that we can't buy a parts pack big block Chevy as well as other popular engines for a reasonable price. You could buy a resin BB Chevy, but by the time you buy it and add shipping it would probably cost less to buy a kit just for the engine and keep the rest of the kit for parts or build it as a "curbside'.

I went to a "gentleman's club" because the sign said they had all the hottest models. I thought it was a hobby shop. Man, was I ever disappointed.

The Corvette 1967 has a big block 427 in it. It only costs about $10.

Wow, they are nice, but if you think about it, it's almost like spending 25,000 dollars in the 1/25 scale world, Big Smile
