    I found this kit at a local Yard Sale a couple of summers ago now.
    It was mostly in kit form still. The Previous builder had glued the crank malformed & block wasn't glued right either. Had only one piece missing which is the starter gear so if anyone watching has one they can part with PM me. Thx! Enjoy!

    Nice!! Is the fan on backwards or is the engine spinning the wrong direction? My guess it is spinning in the wrong direction?

    That’s nice! Looks like a lot of patience was involved and the results were worth it.

    Spinning wrong direction.
    Very cool.
    I remember those kits.

    I remember the visible V8 and the Wankel but never knew there was a Hemi too.

    Kinda quiet for a Hemi, I was waiting for it to light off and get loud.:poke: I suppose it would melt then though.

    I noticed that too.
    I do have it on backwards thinking it had more detail on the one side and the side sticking out was not very detailed so I installed that way not even thinking of the way the blades were oriented...:p

    Agreed. I had thought of adding some LED's since the power source is the right voltage.
    I may get bored and do that but I'm under strict instructions to work on the real deal for the summer.
    I have to align the convertible top & side windows on the Polara

    I think the electric motor may be wired wrong...
    Something to check into

    Wow, I'm very impressed. That looks so real. Love how it's see through, so you can see the stuff inside move. Reminds me of a "cut-away". Congrats, great work.:thumbsup:. As other people said, it's the cheapest Hemi you'll get without buying a real one.

    I have a spot in my heart for the mighty Slant 6.

    I have owned several including a new truck with Slant 6 and 3 on the tree.

    Looks great! I have one of those kits unbuilt as well. That's on the list of things that I'll get around to someday.

    Yah it's spinning backwards thanks to an incorrectly wired DC motor in the display.
