The engine was easy to build. I added spark plug's and their ignition wires, including a coil wire. I included an engine and transmission oil dip sticks.
The wooden pallet represents the kind of "skid" that they put engine's on for shipment to [...]
One of my first kits I did a couple of years ago. All hand painted. The weathering is paint splattered and chalk. It was also one of my first times painting a figure face in a larger scale.
