Back to engine idea, I exhausted the morning searching for Ferrari engine scale model kits, thinkin I'd cannibalize parts to re-create something the closely resembles the 599's intake manifold. That didn't really pan out, so I'm thinkin instead I'd try sculpting it in clay. From what I've read, Magic Sculp works great, so I ordered it from Tap Plastics here

According to Frostytech's review, the Coolermaster V8 has a surface roughness of approximately 16 microinches.

The CM & V8 logo had to go. I replaced the center section of the CPU cooler with round hole modders mesh. To save labor, I'm utilizing valve covers from 1:6 scale diecast HEMI engine model kit I found on Ebay. They're just the right scale for the cpu cooler. I'm still in mock up mode for the Ferrari 599's intake manifold, jebuz, I have to make 12 of these suckas! I found that an old VGA cable was just the right diameter. I may use these or sculpt all 12 of the pipes with modeling clay to create the right angle of the pipes. I may get more detailed with stuff like adding plug wires, depending how the sculpting goes. btw: Tap Plastics goofed and sent Magic Smooth instead of Magic Sculpt. I'm gonna head over to art supply store tommorow and buy super sculpy.

The V8 logo was GONE IN 60 SECONDS!


1:6 scale diecast HEMI engine valve covers






Making access holes for mounting screws of the cover






VGA cable, perfect diameter for intake pipes, may sculpt these instead

Thanks, still in early stages, Tap Plastics sent the wrong clay

Maybe!

I'm just waiting for measurement of space between motherboard and window from Brian (customer) before I start sculpting the intake manifolds, or customize the window if neccessary

Well, theres been some changes...lol

Plan A got scrapped, Plan B is about saving space, 75% of the 599 engine head is being made from modeling clay now, so the cooler will fit in Brians TJ07 case..lol

1/8 thick acrylic riser


manifold air intake hose made from plastic wire loom, heated and bent


roughly 3/16" tall manifolds made from modeling clay


Next up, making 12, intake pipes!


My "worm chorus line" is starting to morph in to intake pipes. The next step is applying more clay to join them to the manifolds. From there, acrylic primer, then a coat of silver "manifold" colored paint, then off to mnpctech's master painter, Brad Galvin to have intricate details like the Ferrari text on the red covers painted.



the pipes will be smoothed over with another application of clay.
