Hi Julian,

I've had to convert the sizes (old age creeping in ....)

595mm long
220mm wide
198mm high

So approx:

23.4 inches long
8.67 inches wide
7.8 inches high

Sounds like it's going to be a real beast !

Well here it is. The 1st pictures and the 1st parts assembled. As the whole Engine Block is painted the same colour green i'm going to assemble it and THEN paint it so that the whole Assembly is the same shade.
