OUTSTANDING truly GREAT, just wandering, hope this isn't out of the way but how much does it cost to do a model with all the aftermarket items that i see in your builds, and how much time do you put in a build like this , i read the post about that amazing camaro you built that it took you 3 years to finish it, is that the time on all your builds, and all of the ones i have seen so far are truely amazing, RHF.

I'M THE BOSS BECAUSE MY WIFE SAID I WAS. SAVE A CHILD FROM TO MUCH T.V. GIVE THEM A MODEL KIT.

Building a model like this takes a lot of time, and if you have a family with kids. (like I do)... it will take a little bit longerSmileBig Smile... Time is not important...the results are. SmileSmile

When I read the subject line "66 Fairlane 427 engine" I thought "Why is this guy posting just an engine?" Then I saw the photo and nearly bit off my tongue! That is unbelievably beautiful work. Thanks for putting the rest of us to shame. Wow.

"Wow" is an understatement! In fact, I don't know of a word to use in (as Jim Haught says) "Conversational English" that accurately can discribe the fine level of detail you have obtained here. Bow Fury3

Are your bolts/screws photo-etched? If not, was the detail molded in? What did you do there?

Gorgeous engine bay! I don't know where to begin with the praise.

I am gonna take a guess and say that the firewall and wheels are painted Wimbledon White. Did I guess right?

My compliments... I particularly like the fact that the wiper motor even had a "rubber" grommet where the wiring entered... Wink

It's going to look beautiful! I wasn't on the forum when the thread started in April so I am glad I got to look at that engine! Great job! I knew there was a reason that I only build box stock --it's because I can't do that! CoolBig SmileBow

If you cannot have a good time, what kinda time can you have? JR

Next on the bench:  Another 1970 Hemi 'Cuda, 1958 Chevy Impala, 1987 Buick GNX, 1950 Chevy Pick-up, Indy Reynard, 1965 Corvette, probably not in this order.
