Chevy Small Block Engine
by Alan Gomez
There were a lot more parts in this 1/6 scale Testors kits than it looks like. I’m guessing that there are well over 100 parts to this Chevy Small Block engine.
The fuel line is 4 pieces; the distributor is 7 pieces, the carburetor is 7 pieces – you get the idea.
The major components came chromed. On most kits with chromed pieces, all you do is scratch the surface of the parts that are to be glued.
Not so with this one – the chroming goes deep, so I had to use super glue and epoxy to stick it together.
