Does anyone have any info on adding details to a model truck engine? photos of real engines? I would like to add more detail that that provided by Gatto Plan Service plans.
thanks

Just how detailed do you want to go? Some hobby machinists have made working small scale engines.
You could go to a truck dealership, take pictures of the engine and duplicate as closely as you have time
and patience for. Will be waiting for tour solution.
