Dodge 426 Street Hemi engine
Posted by mmthrax on Sunday, February 25, 2018 3:38 PM

This is another in my "Great engines" series:  The Dodge 426 Street Hemi.

This is what you get in the box.

It starts to build up nicely.

This model, as opposed to other engines I have built, has not only a die cast block, but the heads and headers are also die cast.  This model has some heft!

Just keep picking away at it...

Some ancilliaries.

Good detail on the rear with the breather tubes.  The crank spins as well as the starter.

Building up with good detail.

Behold the behemoth!  This was a fun build and I think it looks great.  It also weighs a ton!  Thanks for looking.

YesStick out tongue  Curious Mark What are the overall sizes ( Base display x height. )  .

Not got a lot of shelf space left !!! I might have to do a 1:64 Whistling

I've got a 64/5/6 Vette & The Big T kit in 1:8th , but that equates to.......

.....roughly 124 x HotWheels !!!Laugh

Thanks Nigel and Spencer for stopping by.  

Spencer, the base is 120mm x 150mm, and the height is about 160mm.  They are all about the same.  The flathead Ford is the tallest at 175mm.
