    its blackgang, he's 175 years of age, he doesnt know how to post pics.

    here it tis, lazy bastards...

    My current project is a 1/6th scale Chevrolet 327 cu in V8. Based on a 1964 365 hp Corvette motor, measurements have been taken from an actual engine as to be most accurate. The head and block began as billet aluminum that have been painstakingly machined on a Bridgeport-style mill. The 5-main crank has real babbit bearings, while the cam is a scale 30-30 Duntov. Dies were developed for stamping out the front cover, oil pan and rockers. The pistons and water pump housing are cast aluminum, and the valve covers are going to be investment cast.
    Since this engine is a runner, there is spark ignition, a pressurized oil system and a cooling system just like its big brother
    Right now the engine has been completed to the point that it will run for brief periods of time. However, several things have yet to be finished including the water pump/radiator, valve covers and carburator to make this a full time running engine.

    If you do not have the brains to click and open a link to see it all then look at what the IDIOT posted and be done with it.

    When I was a teenager, I used to go to all the radio-control airplane shows and displays. I always loved the scale model war planes.
    There was always a MIG-15 and F-86 Sabre, early jets that would do a dog-fight for the crowds. They had to use pusher propellors back then. They spoiled the look of the model and sounded wrong when they were in the air.

    The ingenious Germans have invented model jet engines. Brilliant. They come in two sizes. 7 kg and 2 kg of thrust.

    it's kind of hard to tell if that battery is AA or AAA it might have been smart if they rotated it to distinguish that.

    If that is a AA battery it should take about 12 of then to be the length of a Chev small block head.
    But of coarse I am not a Chev lover, altho a good engine, I only built a couple of em and the last one was when I was building that 35 Ford street rod pickup.
