    The guy on the left is a skilled, fine scale mechanic and quite adept with the tools of his trade, as you can see. Now the guy on the right is obviously
    supervisor materia l At least thats what he keeps telling me.

    I used Paul Koo's K-72 Rolls Royce Supplemental Assembly Instructions to a great extent when superdetailing the engine. I even added the cylinder oil lubricating lines and the ignition system is fully wired. This was a pre-hydraulic time when everything was controled and operated with levers and cams.

    That is astonishing how did you photograph it to look like a model engine (it must be full sized real one that's the only explanation )
    Ken's the name modeling the game.

    Thanks. Just think 1932 was the year that Henry Ford introduced the first production monoblock V8





    But I digress.

    Nice, busy engine! The V8 Ford is quite simple in comparison.

    Spectacular work.

    The mechanic looks just like Robin Williams.

    I have always believed that the less we understand the problem the more complicated we make the solution. Mr Ford understood the problem.

    English people are not known to find simple solutions. The multiple levers for that transmission is a good example!
    Anyway, you have done a nice engine. Congratulation.
