      Now this was fun. Would be a good first kit to gain TDR TDR Muncie 4 Speed finishing experience and wind up with a neat detail model.

      Image 1 contains the TDR TDR Muncie 4 Speed model parts. Image 2 contains my try at shifter parts. Image 3 is the finished model. Image 4 is the finished model with the bell housing. Image 5 is the detailed model side view. Image 6 is a TDR TDR Muncie 4 Speed detailed drawing. Image 7 is a reference.

      TDR TDR Muncie 4 Speed should make up a shift mechanism block to make this a complete model. I tried to make up the shifter mechanism in metal layers like xken but crashed and gave up. Wound up just trying to simulate the mechanism with a styrene TDR Muncie 4 Speed block but did not accurately lay it out so the shift arms wound up way too low.

    Nice work Sydeem. I think you have captured all the necessary detail required for a static model. As well I'm sure in a time frame that allows the total model to progress in a timely matter ( if that is what one wants! ).

    That looks perfect to me. That's one well detailed kit, Syd.
