I have finished the engine and managed to get the bulkhead secure to the frame. For a moment there as I was struggling with the fit of the bulkhead I actually found myself longing for the next wire wheel to work on. Smile. But I prevailed and the fit seems nice,straight and tight.

The engine looks great and DeAgostini has done a fabulous job with the detail. As I was looking at the motor and the related components I could not help but think that some decals, photoetch etc. might really dress up the engine compartment. Does anyone know if there are any aftermarket detail up items for this size engine. I am aware of the 1:8 Monogram kit which I believe has some decals for the engine area. Are there any others out there that could be acquired?

Thanks for the tip Mustang. I will have a look on EBay. I am familiar with Roy...he has been super helpful on several issues I have encountered thus far on my build. Much appreciated.

Mustang, I found Roy's site on EBay and purchased a sheet of his decals. At the time it looked like he only had 5 remaining...again thanks for the tip.
