Very nice indeed, how will you show the fan shroud/brackets that the water tanks sit on? They will need to be sliced! 8)

On the bottom of the coolant tanks, I created two shims to bring them to the right height (they can be eliminated or lowered if necessary).
The coolant tank is attached to the engine head with a bracket like the real one. I don't know, if that was the question, because I don't quite understand what you mean.

Phil, the fans aren't there,
there is no room to do them.
Anyway, on Wednesday I think I can start assembling an engine before I send you yours. So maybe we understand each other better.
The decals should also arrive on Monday.
Have a nice Sunday

First cloned pieces.
Do you know the color, RAL code, of the engine?
Thanks

The Leyland block colour has come to be known as Duck Egg Blue but the official colour reference for Leyland Engines is actually Sky Blue. For the exact hue, its specification under British Standard 381c is BS101. You can see a sample here:
