Thanks guys for your comments. Barney, I use Basswood for it's fine grain. If I need a part larger than 1/2  lets say 3/4 I will laminate 1/2 stock with 1/4 stock. I can find stock up to 1/2 X 3 or 4 wide 24 long at my train shop or at a craft store (hobby lobby).  Northeastern scale lumber has a larger selection of basswood parts, more sizes of sheets and strips, up to 6 wide, structural and architectural shapes and milled shapes of all types. If you don't like wood grain on your engine block  you can apply sand sealer or a thin CA.
