Hello everyone. I've not been on this site for about 5 years or so.
I basically stopped building model cars and dioramas that long ago. Now the kids are bigger I think I'll give it a go.
I need help with something. I still building (many years ago) a service station scene with the 1999 Ford Focus at the Kenya Rally.
I'm looking for tips to build scratch 1/24 engines, or
If I can buy a ready built Ford Focus engine 1/24 scale.
OR get good detail pics of the said motor.

Thanks in advance

This is some pics of a previous diorama I did

For engine you can use some R4 engine and use it as a base, detail it to look like fords engine. Or build from scrats using styrene
