I'm at finish line with delta (just ramining some final decal to receive)

Finally i re start the work on my gti.

Watching the staus, i'm not satisfy of the result reached

I’ve started a tuned/stanced project but i decided to remade it with extra details to add more realism to my model.

Here the status









I need your help to find some references pics to add the missing details

The engine kit i think is a PB engine

Here i started to work on block.
I made hole for engine lift
I scribed the head that was absent
I now repainted the block in iron mica, the head will be painted in allumium block.

If you want and if is it possible i want to share with you my building

I started to selfmade (just finish the final shape) a new clutch lever on gearbox to replicate the future clutch cable (totally missed in the kit)

I coated in primer the engine bay to highlight the faults.

I decided to eliminate the wiper tank. I'll fitted an extra engine oil cooling radiator. I remade a modified radiator and i self made a first version of cooling duct.

I checked the clearence between bonnet and radiator duct...It's too near. I decided to remade a new shape of duct.

I added joint to radiator for future braided hose

I start to modified the inside high beam projector to create a Venturi duct for cooling the extra radiator. I removed the fluted glass and i fitted a metal mesh. Before to finish this work I nedd to work the headlight for fit the mesh properly.

Before to proceed with other engine or gearbox details, i remade whole engine mount system.

The kit has only 1 (the gearbox side and also is not completed) of 3 engine mount.

I remade my best for my skills, the 3 engine mount.

I reinforced the front struts and i used a modified lego brick to match the right angle for front mount

The rear (timing belt side) was totally missing.
I self made an alu bracket.

The two rear engine mount are fixed on subframe to make easier the future fitting of subframe and arms.

Before continuing with engine bay (missing some ribs on firewall to be replicated) I make some adjustment work.

The oil sump is missing of a parts of block. With styrene I did the new piece (in the next days i’ll paint with color of block)
The timing cover is missing of the rear cover.....with styrene i did also this.

My attention was to the air intake sistem.

I don’t like the oem filter, so i decided to try to replicate the CDA of bmc (that I have really fitted on my Gti mk3)

I modified the intake hose. With lego bricks i made the MAF sensor and i used the upper control unit from the 1/8 kit.

I finally made the futur carbon box of CDA.

With help of PataFix i fitted all the new system to check clearence and space.

Next step will be:

- fully moulding with putty of hoses and air bix
- repainting and use shrink tube for part of hoses
- carbon coating of filter box
- new bracket to fix the new airbox.

1/2 post

Yesterday I continued the extra add on engine.

The engine (particularly the gearbox) kit is missing of some detail.
I add the check hole for timing on flywheel...then i painted it in green
I replicate a single gear linkage (as like a Delta hf integrale that i build few months ago)

I finished extra detail on clutch leverage

I started to fix timing cover, alternator (which i added a cable) and water pump. I need fitted these elements to adjust the mistake of the kit for cooling and wiring.

I covered with bare metak foil the spark plugs to imitate the original.

I did my personal best to replicate the clutch cable. With metal wire i did the first visible section.
With a drinking straw, shrink and rubber wire i replicated the clutch cable.

The oil level is orrible from the kit, i remade by myself

I remade the hydraulic joint on the head (i added 2 slot for sensor and future wiring)

Finally i started the work on pulley, i separated them from the printed belt. I’ll made a belt from shrink or elastic.

Thanks Kev Blushing

In the past week i continued the work on engine.

I remade the support/radiator of oil filter.
I also add 2 extra joint for extra custom radiator.

The injectors-fuel rail is very poor from the kit.
I added a lego brick to simulate the fuel pressure regulator and 2 joint for fuel lines.
I also added 4 tube that want remember the 4 injectors.
Finally i painted the rail in metallic red and titanium gold the regulator.
To match the 4 injectors to right size i filled the gap between the duct.

I selfmade the vapors oil caniters with lego brick, i coated it with bare metal foil; i added the hose level and joint to connect to other joint on rocker cover.

I also fitting the nee metal coolant pipes adding the missing hose to waterpump.

I fitted the engine starter and finally I fitted the inlet manifold.

Just some pics in the engine bay to control the fitting and clearence.
