Build Your Own V8 Combustion Engine Information
This build-your-own V8 combustion engine toy model is an excellent way to begin to understand how a modern, fast petrol engine is designed and built. By following the simple and clear step-by-step instructions, children and adults alike, can learn how to build an engine that really works - albeit as a model; unfortunately it won't power your boat up and down stream but it's fun to see it all come to life once built.
Although this is a simplified version of a real-working engine, and does not get into the marinisation of engines for boat applications, the building experience does highlight the major components of a combustion engine with real engine terms and explanations. When everything is in order and the timing is right, you can start your engine and watch it purr - looking through the translucent engine casing at all the moving parts.
Experience the thrill of real V8 engine sound effects and illuminating bulbs that imitate the spark plugs.
This engine construction model has approximately 250 pieces and should keep budding engineers, young and old (10 and over), entertained during the Christmas festivities - marvelling in the achievement when fully complete and running smoothly! A step-by-step guide is included to avoid any building frustrations along the way!
