Default Need Ford CMP Engine Pix

Doing a model, basically an F60L, and need a few pix of the engine & compartment so I can do the wiring, fuel lines, linkage, etc.
I've done some web searches with not much luck.

Thanks in advance,
John

Yes John. I took a lot of pics of cab 12's in various stages of disrepair. Most show the hidden detail you don't see when a vehicle is complete.

So they were right under your nose all the time.

The Web never ceases to amaze me!!
And even stranger is I almost skipped this thread because I don't have any such photos.

Mr. Roo, I salute you, and thank you as well, as now I don't have to continue my own similar project on Aussie vehicles, which I just barely started. Perhaps, though I can fill in a gap or two by emailing you some of my stuff that I do not see on your gallery.

I will also have to investigate Armorama which is new to me.

We are not all that far apart geography wise, if you are ever in the Atlanta area, I would love to have you out to the house to look over my stuff. I rarely get up your way but might have to consider it.

If you are in need of any CMP kits, I do have several of the Italeri brand Chevs either in stock or at home and I think a Ford or two as well.
Cheers
Bill

I think I shot myself in the foot again. Hanno, is Mr. Roo also Mr. Ratz or did you just throw that in as you had found the gallery?
Mr. Roo on the Armorama site seems to reside on OZ.

Yes I must admit that I, in fact, am MrRoo of armorama. Yes Hanno I uploaded my data base of photos that I have gathered over time from the web.

A lot I cannot remember where they came from but if you happen to see any that I 'borrowed' from any of your sites please let me know and I will acknowledge you with all the credits.

The main reason I put the pics there is because I am suffering fron a degenerate disease which will evenually kill me, sooner rather then later, and I wanted these photos put somewhere so my modeling buddies from around the world could have them for reference. I only say this here in justification and NOT so any of you will feel sorry for me!

I put them there for information only and free and have no intention of ever making money out of them.

So guys please don't be mad at me if I have put some of your pics up there without asking:

thanks
Cliff AKA MrRoo

Bill I would love to add any pics that you send to my archive on Armorama.

Sorry Jratz and MrRoo are two seperate people with a common goal. To build accurate as possible models. Although MrRoo does solely Trucks, allied, WW2, and mainly australian.

Bill go to MrRoo's private gallery in Armorama. Go to scale models http://www.armorama.com/modules/phot...04&ppuser=1363 and models under construction http://www.armorama.com/modules/phot...66&ppuser=1363 and you can see a little of my work.

PS> this is one of the latest a step x step on a Chev heavy (aust) recon wagon. http://www.armorama.com/modules/phot...26&ppuser=1363
