Holy smoke Paul, that's the best shot yet that I've been able to find of the Davies DOHC. I was considering scratchbuilding a version for myself, but only had 2 or 3 small photos to reference. Thanks for posting that one!
I've had these for a few years, you may not have them. The belt drive was the last Davies series made. Only 6 belt drives made. The bare block in the second pic is a good shot of the block off for the stock intake area. Paul

Would that be a good candidate for 3D modeling with all the geometry involved?
...Maybe! My initial goal was to 3D print it, but the overall shapes are pretty achievable with traditional modeling techniques. The toughest bits would be the kidney-bean-shaped cam gear covers at the front (just maintaining a consistent radius on that edge all the way around would be tricky) and the "elbows" for the drive shafts. Oh, and the recessed bolt heads...for those, I'd probably drill holes, insert styrene rod plugs to an appropriate depth, and top with scale bolt heads. *note to self: buy bolt heads!!!

I've always dug the runoff through the doorways into another space. (Some didn't make it - see below) Also the banner screaming (Finish [Line?] Back Off! Apparently it was a very short track, some 440 feet I have read. 100 mph in 1/15th of a mile is haulin'! And yes, show us the snow plowed strip pics!
Looking at that guardrail, that's downright scary! For one thing most of it is placed way too low. It looks almost at spindle level or lower. An out of control car could easily jump the rail it's nearly on the ground anyway. Most modern Guardrail is mounted right around 31 inches off the road surface to make it effective in retaining an errant vehicle.
Don't get me started on that guardrail that's just laying on the floor with those large chunks of I-beam to tear up anything coming in contact with it! Upon further inspection, those stanchions the guardrail is mounted on were not bolted to the floor or anything. They are just standing there looking pretty!
WoW, that '32 Three Window must have been really nice before it spun around, blasting the hay bales and the wall or something else pretty solid. Certainly can't blame the guardrail for tearing it up like that!
krassandbernie: Do you guys even check the 'recent threads' or 'recent posts' buttons down at the bottom of the main page?

krassandbernie: You guys missing the other posts I've made in the 'resin' section? I see a couple of you have spotted the Fordor sedan builds by customers I posted; but missed the others.

superflekmoonbird: Thanks Paul...they look good. Air temp may be part of it...for comparison some rattle cans (Tamiya) mention 50 degree F and above, Testors Lacquer says 70 degrees..

RodBurNeR: last time he logged in here or dpmcc was July 9th. I am getting concerned , his Facebook has nothing on it. I sent him a text message, it's late but I want to know if he's ok.
