Thank you Ivano for the explicitly answer and expressive arguments.
I will come back to you and wrote you a PM.

On this topic, it would be interesting to read the opinions and ideas of those who have already assembled the engine. I hope someone wants to participate in this interesting discussion. Thanks Ivano

i have a Ivano Engine, they are a work of art and too good to chop, they are a stand alone model in them selves, you need to make an engine compartment that will slot in and out of the tank, so you can enjoy the engine detail when not in use, or a less detailed top half of an engine that can only be seen with the deck hatch open, these mods do enhance the models, regards simon manning.

I have one of Ivano,s engines and can highly recommend them. I have only assembled the MDF frame at the moment and everything fitted together perfectly. As Simon said, I wouldn’t chop the engine in half as it’s to good a product to spoil in this way.
When I get round to assembling the rest of the engine I will post some more details of my build.
Regards
Steve

Left side:
i'll show you what you should never do, I've always said and keep saying that before gluing you always have to check many times that everything is aligned. I didn't do it and that's the result

also, I forgot to insert the pins !! ??
what are you up to Ivano?

I have not correctly aligned the four brackets, and the cylinder does not rest correctly

the oil cooler supports are almost perfect, just a small change in circumference, careful not to damage the holes

The correct assembly sequence is as follows:

The sirocco fan is almost finished, I will complete it later.
Now, I will skip the assembly stages of those engine components that have no particular difficulty in assembling. It is very difficult to make mistakes because all the pieces are packed with their respective bolts. Anyway, if you have doubts, ask me.

Try to center the flywheel well with the fan and cover.
Mine is not perfect, but once finished and closed, you will not see anything.

I haven't put the bolts on the lid yet

This terminal must be shortened to the correct size, I don't have a tank, so I can't do it.

One thing that differentiates the P45 from the P30 are the vertical collectors of the exhaust pipes. Here are the main pieces that make them up, only the corrugated pipes are missing. They came out well, I like them, what do you say?

Here's how it looks mounted.
If you think that's not good, make comments.
Thank!

Before placing the drain pipes, I preferred to paint them. Before joining them, check that everything is aligned, check that the false support brackets enter the holes and housings. Also check that the covers have space to slide both above and below. Before gluing, test the entire assembly. Pay attention to the covers, they are thin, therefore a little fragile. Before putting the covers on, put the pipe ends.

The lower left cover must be cut in this way.

Left exhaust, I don't have the tank, therefore I don't know the length of the vertical pipes, each one will have to cut them as required by the engine compartment.

The right drain is also positioned.
It is necessary to slightly lower the upper side from the flange.

How do they seem to you?
