Don't know if this is the right place to post this, or even if it's appropriate to post somebody else's work, but I really want to show some of this modeler's unbelievable work. He posts in the warehouse as JMJ-Ohio, and he's producing some of the best models I have seen. His attention to detail is beyond belief, and everything he's posted so far is absolutely flawless.

He's making a 427 Cammer Motor, complete both externally and internally.

He's also building a '32 Ford 5-Window Highboy to put the engine in. It's not finished yet but he's posted some of the parts and it's just as awesome. Unfortunately (for me) I was working on my own '32, and after seeing his work I've pretty much lost interest in finishing mine. He's set the bar way too high.

Anyhow, just wanted to show everyone some of JMJ-Ohio's fantastic work.

Wow! I'd say that clutch assembly is way beyond the call of duty. He knows how to model. Where to put the fine detail and where not to.

I don't know what to say... everything is insane detailed ... I can't see parts with less details than something that is prepared for production.

This is one of those rare models that you just want to keep exploring to see what details you can find next. I'm no engine expert, but I'd bet that each screw, bolt, spring, and fitting is exactly the proper item. I have a great deal of difficulty with making wires or pipes that look like I want them to, let alone have them go precisely from point A to point B. He does it flawlessly. And the textures he's created for all of the various metals really contribute to the overall effect. Makes you want to grab a timing light and go at it (if anybody still remembers what a timing light is :lol: )

We really need to get this guy in the next issue of CatchUp

What? The lazy SOB can't model the rest of the car?!

Just kiddin...don't bite my head off.

I thought I was anal retentive when it comes to detailed modeling, and then along comes stuff like this. Impressive. his training is complete. He is now a sketchup-jedi master.

@dereei:
I kind of based my comment on noticing the flanges and body of the fuel pump housing had some telltale facets. But the main portion of the work overall is fantastic.

This is outstanding -- it's so rare to see modeling like this on the warehouse. I couldn't resist doing a clay render with Maxwell.

Textures I can work with -- Rendering is completely beyond me. I hope I didn't offend anybody by playing with Jason's render. You've got to be so careful nowadays :?

Very nice! with all that knowledge of engine detail you'd think the modeler would know that the 427 is a chev engine though. Ford makes the 429 !? :oops:

Ford_427_SOHC___Cammer___by_DetroitDemigod.jpg


Wiki:
The Ford Single Overhead Cam (SOHC) 427 V8 engine, familiarly known as the "Cammer", was released in 1964 to recapture NASCAR dominance from the Chrysler 426 Hemi engine. The Chrysler 426 used extremely large block casting that dwarfed the earlier 392 Hemi. The Ford 427 block was closer dimensionally to the early Hemis than to the elephantine 426 Hemi: the Ford FE bore spacing was 4.63 in (117.6 mm) compared to the Chrysler 392's bore spacing of 4.5625 in (115.9 mm). The Ford FE's deck height of 10.17 in (258.3 mm) was lower than that of the Chrysler 392 at 10.87 in (276.1 mm). For comparison, the 426 Hemi has a deck height of 10.72 in (272.3 mm) and bore spacing of 4.8 in (121.9 mm); both Chrysler Hemis have decks more than 0.5 in (12.7 mm) taller than the FE.

The engine was based on the ultra high performance 427 side-oiler block, providing race-proven durability. The block and associated parts were largely unchanged, the main difference being use of an idler shaft instead of the camshaft in the block, which necessitated plugging the remaining camshaft bearing oiling holes.

It's been a long time since I've worked on an engine, and I've never worked on a Cammer, but shouldn't there be bolts here?

Or is is bolted from below before assembly, and these are just the top of the threaded holes?

Hello Everyone...

I'm JMJ-Ohio (Jim Jeffries) and I live in Brookville, Ohio. I want to thank hellnbak for introducing my work to this forum. Did'nt know SketchUcation existed until he contacted me. The "Cammer" was my first real project using SketchUp and I relied more on countless hours at the tube and stubbornness than on talent. The monkey can paint a masterpiece if given enough time and bananas. :lol:

I have been involved with machinery and mechanisms for 40+ years, being employed as a mechanical designer and project engineer. I retired 2 years ago, thus allowing me time to catch-up on home projects and play on the computer. But, I rejoined the work force last month so play time will now be very limited.

The Ford 427 SOHC project. No, I didn't have any blueprints or have an engine in my garage. Online research netted numerous technical articles that included critical dimensions and data. I also downloaded and printed hundreds of photos. The combination of known dimensions, proportional measuring of photos and deduced dimensions via detail relationships allowed the picture to come together. A thorough understanding of the function and construction of the subject item is a vital part in allowing the creation of realistic images.

I am pleased with the results of my efforts, but my models are not practical due to their resultant file sizes.
I envy those of you who can create works that please the eye, are portable in size and don't take hundreds of hours to produce. There are many very talented artists and craftsmen out there and when I see their work it encourages me to try harder and learn new ways to do things.

Have added a few more screen shots.

p.s. -- no bolts from the top in those carb holes. Your second observation is correct.

Welcome to SCF Jim.

That model is insane, the amount of detail is staggering, you must suffer from OCD to create such a master piece.

Hope to see more in the future.
