Valve lifting rods and a bit of paint.  FINI!  Google image search the engine that you want.  I collect many photos.  REmember....these  engines are not exact.   rather , they are abstracts.  They look great under a cowel.

Outstanding...Quite a production line going there. 
Love the details really makes the Ford Tri-Motor

Thanks for the process...I can see where balsa and lighter materials could be used for the free flight guys...Especially the threading of the dowls...WOW
