    Apr 3, 2006, 12:08 PM - V-8 Connecting Rod #1

    Just a quick question about the orig part. Is it metal or plastic? I bought a few things off the RPF a little while ago, and the seller threw in the connecting rod (metal), and the crank case cover (metal as well). I am just curious if these are the real parts that were used with the model kit. I can't imagine a metal part being used on a 'visible' V-8 model.

    The originals were plastic.

    That's what I thought. Someone put a lot of work into these metal parts. I guess the connecting rod will make a nice key fob.
