This is the Ford 427 from Revell.  

This is what you get in the box.  B52 sold separately.Smile

It goes together well and there is ample detail.

Just keep picking away at it...

The finished article.  This was an easy build, and I think it makes for a great representation of the engine.  Lots of visual interest.  I can see it in a big Galaxie 2 door.  It will make a fine addition to my "Great engines" series.

Great build! Saw the real thing a long time ago and rode in a black 63 fastback. Pushed me back in the seat at every shift. The 2 fours really howl.

Thanks litespeed.  I have never experienced the 2 four setup.  I bet it was really something.  I have always liked "full sized" muscle.  Thanks for your read and reply.

Looks great Mark (if I may),

By chance have you built the 429 Cobrajet?

would love to see picks, if so.

Hello Mike, Thanks for the read and reply.  I am not familiar with a 429 Cobrajet 1:6 model engine.  Who makes it?  Can you send me a pic or a catalog #?  I would love to build it.

No, not aware of available model. Just asked because I am doing a 1970 Torino GT which has just the std. 429 and I was thinking of converting to a 429 cobrajet.

Sorry Mike I won't be much help there.  A friend at work had a 70 Torino Gt convertible that was outfitted that way.  There is only one surviving picture though.  It was white.  Sounded like a fun car.
