Model Builds: The Current Theme Is All About Motor Madness

What’s going on in the GRM model building community? Engines. Engine swaps. Relocated engines. Custom engines. Engine detailing. 

What kind of work is being shared? Rear-engine conversations, radical swaps and slick detailing. Build a four-rotor, first-gen Mazda RX-7? Why not. 

Words of wisdom from ddavidv:

This thread should be required for all the guys who think swapping X engine into Y chassis of a 1:1 scale car is easy.”

Thank you for sharing the builds, too. (And, I know, I need to get involved again.)

I need to find the rare 1964 Ford Galaxie Station wagon body.I think it was a resin body.Then you use an AMT 1964 Ford Galaxie kit to finish it.
