Hi Rudie,
Great to see another South African modeler posting a build diary.BigGrin
There is a specific South African forum where you can post ( if you want ) my build diary looks a bit lonely there !

Welcome Ruide, it looks like you've gotten off to a good start with this Cool

If you re-size your pictures to 680 x 480 they should appear in your post as pictures rather than downloads Wink

next i just had to get my hands dirty with the engine. i have so many ideas but don`t really know what will work and what not...

anyway i got my hand on some gun metal color spray paint.

i taped up the "HEAD" parts of the engine to keep them the original silver color and sprayed only the block parts.

what do you think of the results??

Nice work, its always good to see people put their own stamp on something by doing little extras such as adding some paint to parts Cool

Ok so here is the motor assembled.

i think it came out quite nicely.

i also laser cut & engraver 2 name plates on the heads of the engine.
