Tabletop Village

Postby IFHP » Sun Nov 11, 2012 3:55 am

My most recent Tabletop Village photo set concerns a meet up of the Ford "Kent" Engine Owners Club.

"Kent" Engine Owners Club Meet Up by IFHP97[/img]

All of these cars (exepting the moderns on the street) are power by versions of the OHV "Kent" I-4, first introduced on the 105E Anglia in 1959. Left to right, starting in back, we have 997 pre-crossflow, 1600 crossflow, 1100 crossflow, 1800 BDA, 1300 Endura E, 1200 pre-crossflow, 1300 crossflow, 1600 Valencia, 997 pre-crossflow, 1340 pre-crossflow, 957 Valencia, 1500 GT pre-crossflow, 1600 GT crossflow, 1300 crossflow and 997 pre-crossflow. I did some reserach (after I took these photos) an was shocked to discover that the latest Kent variation is the Brazilian SOHC "Zetec" Ro-Cam which was also used in Europe as the Duratec 8v.

Your dioramas are excellent

I've driven many of those Kent & Pinto powered cars over the years

As to why the image links won't work i'm not sure

British roads have history. Some were built by the Romans. British road investment being what it is, they have only been re-surfaced a few times since.

Some how the ratio of Cologne to Essex V4 & V6 powered cars in my collection is currently 7:1.

I would love to, but it seems to be impossible. I figure that links are better than nothing. :cry:

Hi Michael

Pick the image size - small, medium, large
Click the BBCcode button
Then in the box will be the link
Copy this link
Paste link into your post here

Example:

Thanks Chris, but this is what happens when I do that:

A step better because it captures the caption, but still no picture.

I copied the underlined part and pasted it.

Thanks Rat!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! It seem that an extra step is required (basically I have to post everything twice), but this is a huge break through and I will go back and replace my links.

Actually I don't need an extra step if I don't use the image button.

Really impressive dioramas, and your collection of 1:43 scale people adds so much to them. Just my oldey-timey music preferences at work here, but I like the hoedown and the banjo player the best!
