Another Super Seven (Part 6)

Kit / Model  

Seven Based Custom

Manufacturer  

Scratch

Item Code  

Scratchbuilt Seven

Scale  

1/12

Description  

It's time to start on the engine. Since I already made the cam cover I figured I'd work my way down from there. (Who says you can't start at the top?)
The head is made from sheet styrene. First I built a box for the top portion that fits to the already made aluminum cam cover, and then I started adding the external details.


I built another box for the lower section of the head. This part was a little more work since I also had to accommodate the header (I made the flange for it at the same time).
