Default Junkyard Stance Sand Scorcher, Final Rear Cage

So, my designs for the rear Engine Cage to house and protect the engine changed quite a bit as the engine itself evolved

My final design removed the rear tabs for the aerial fixing, for a more scale look

The engine has to be fitted into the Engine Cage at this point, as once the twin Turbo Exhaust is fitted, wiggling the engine into the cage became an issue

I planned four mounting points for the Porsche engine, two on the underside, and two on the inner facing side - but in the end, only used the two on the underside

I was finally happy with the fit and look of my enlarger rear Engine Cage.
For added protection, the part was designed to meet the material tolerances for Shapeways cast metal.

So bring on the metal version -
